LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says she may soon allow construction to restart in Michigan if coronavirus hospitalizations continue to drop and testing rises.

The governor held a news conference Monday with business and health care leaders to discuss how she’s assessing the virus’s risk in different economic sectors.

You can watch the raw video of that news conference below:

She told Politico construction operations and other ‘outdoor enterprises’ could reopen in the next phase.

Whitmer also suggested that some industrial sectors could be reopened in stages.

She did not provide specifics on when this latest round of restrictions would be loosened.

Whitmer on Friday extended and loosened one of the country’s strictest stay-at-home orders.

The measure is in effect through May 15. People now must wear a mask in enclosed public spaces such as grocery stores.
