The 4 Primary Measures Gov. Whitmer will use to Safely Re-Engage the State's Economy

In her Monday press conference, the Governor said,  "Every day, we are writing the plan so that we can re-engage safely at the appropriate time with the idea that not one of us wants to go through this again.Those days where we can resume some normalcy – they are on the horizon," she said. "We keep doing what we need to do to get past this moment."

The four primary factors the administration will consider include the following, 

  • Infections rates must be down.
  • The ability to test the coronavirus must improve.
  • The state's healthcare system's capacity must be adequate.
  • Businesses would need to adopt "best practices in the workplace.

Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, the state's chief medical executive, said it's a mix of things and not necessarily "zero cases," but that the right amount of testing is going on, the rate of increases in cases goes down, and that hospitals are ready in case there's a surge of cases after the social distancing measures are lifted.
