(WXYZ) — Michigan House Republicans on Monday unveiled their plan for the state's future response to coronavirus in what they're calling the "roadmap to Michigan's recovery."

VOTE: How long will it take for life to return to normal in Michigan? 1 month? 3 months? 6 months? 1 year?

House Speaker Lee Chatfield released the suggestions which include transitioning to a risk-based, regional approach with three different tiers.

Whitmer said where we are today is much further along than where we were 10 days ago. However, she said Michigan still has a disproportionately large number of COVID-19 cases compared to larger states.

"We can't let up too early...or we could have to be back at stay-home again with a second wave, nobody wants that."
