Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said that if hospitals begin to get overwhelmed as COVID-19 cases increase once again, Michigan could take a step backwards.

Earlier this month, Whitmer moved the Upper Peninsula region back to Phase 4 of the MI Safe Start Plan. Every region in the state is in Phase 4, except the Traverse City area, which is in Phase 5.
