Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) on Tuesday extended a statewide emergency declaration through October 27 over concerns of the spread of coronavirus.

A spokesperson for the governor's office told the Detroit Free Press that the executive order signed Tuesday would continue the governor's trend of extending the order by four weeks at a time, based on the current state of the outbreak.

“This emergency will end, and it is a matter of months," Whitmer said in a news release, according to the Detroit Free-Press.

While the stay-at-home order in Michigan ended in June, some coronavirus restrictions have remained in place. Those include capacity restrictions for businesses.

Michigan continues to ban public water shutoffs during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Tuesday, Michigan health officials have reported slightly fewer than 900 new coronavirus cases in the state, including 20 people who've died in the past day.

"But we are not out of the woods yet. Right now, the federal government and all 50 states have been under some form of state of emergency. We must continue doing our part to fight this virus on behalf of our families, frontline workers, and our small businesses," Whitmer said.
