Gretchen Whitmer has issued a sweeping order banning dine-in customers at restaurants and closing all bars, movie theaters, gyms and other sports facilities to curb the spread of the coronavirus. The order will last through March. She also prohibited large gatherings of more than 50 people and ordered that more people qualify for unemployment benefits during the global pandemic. Businesses can still offer food and beverages for pickup, delivery and via a drive-through service. The state reported one new case of COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the Michigan total to 54.  (AP)
