(WXYZ) — Governor Gretchen Whitmer has signed an Executive Order extending the eviction moratorium in Michigan until June 30.
The moratorium had been scheduled to expire at midnight.
Whitmer also signed an Executive Order to extend protections for people in county jails, lockups, and detention centers.
“By extending the protection against eviction for non-payment we can ensure that COVID-19-infected individuals and vulnerable populations can isolate in the safety of their homes while continuing to protect incarcerated persons in our prisons, jails, and juvenile detention centers,” Governor Whitmer said in a news release. “These orders will ensure that we can continue to flatten the curve, avoid a second wave of infection, and protect the heroes serving on the front lines of this crisis.”
