Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is echoing the advice coming from the White House and is calling on anyone who has to leave their home for any reason during the coronavirus pandemic to wear a mask.

In her update Monday on the state’s fight against the virus, she held up a homemade Detroit Tigers mask someone had sent her as an example, and said N-95 and surgical masks need to be reserved for medical personnel and first responders.

Whitmer says new data shows Michigan residents are doing an excellent job at staying home, citing a graphic published over the weekend by the New York Times showing the movement of people by county nationwide with Michigan and New York among the best at limiting movement in recent weeks.
