Michigan residents have been prohibited from traveling between residences within the state, according to an extension of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's "shelter-in-place" order passed down on Thursday.

Travel between two Michigan residences had been permitted until the most recent order, which also extends the "shelter-in-place" order until May 1.

"All public and private gatherings of any size are prohibited," Whitmer said at a news conference.

Starting Saturday morning, Michigan is prohibiting travel between residences except for activities like caring for a relative, elderly friend, or pet; visiting a nursing home; attending a funeral with no more than 10 people; or complying with a court order related to child custody.

Violating the order can come with a fine of $1,000.
