"Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to extend stay-home order as state furloughs workers

By Associated Press

April 22, 2020 | 4:53pm

LANSING, Mich. — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Wednesday she likely will extend her stay-at-home order beyond April 30 even if she relaxes restrictions to reopen parts of the economy.

She said she was hoping to talk more Friday about loosening the rules for businesses that have closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. She said there likely will be a “short-term” extension of the stay-home order.

Also Wednesday, Whitmer’s administration notified state employees of temporary layoffs necessitated by a drop in tax revenues due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The state will furlough 2,900, or less than 1%, of the 48,000-person workforce for two weeks to save about $5 million. Whitmer’s administration will then reassess whether further days are necessary, said Tiffany Brown, spokeswoman for Whitmer.

Am I the only one who realizes 1% of 48,000 isn't 2,900 but 480.

6.04% to be exact. Not defending them by any means but maybe they meant less than 10%.
