DETROIT, MI (AP)-- Michigan's ninth coronavirus-related death has been reported in Washtenaw County where officials now suspect community transmission, as the total number of COVID-19 cases continued to rise statewide.
Washtenaw County Health Department officials said in a release Sunday night that a man described as an "elderly, adult male with underlying health conditions," was hospitalized Saturday and died Sunday. His death was the first attributed to COVID-19 in the county.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued an executive order closing personal care services like hair salons and spas for three weeks, starting Sunday.
