Coronavirus

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is relaxing coronavirus restrictions to lift a ban on nonessential medical and dental procedures, reopen retail shops and let residents gather in groups of 10 or less.

The small social gatherings can start immediately.

Retails stores and auto dealerships can reopen by appointment only starting Tuesday.

Medical, dental and veterinary offices can resume nonessential procedures beginning May 29.

The governor says her stay-at-home order likely will be extended beyond May 28.
