Article test 2

Michigan is extending for one month  its current COVID-19 restrictions, which require mask wearing, limited capacity at most businesses, 50% indoor dining, small private gatherings and testing for youth athletics. 

The move comes after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and state health officials repeatedly pleaded with Michiganders to get vaccines, wear masks and practice other safety measures in an effort to avoid further restrictions. While Republicans have applauded the governor's resistance to calls for more rules, federal health officials have said they are the only way for Michigan to put an end to what has become the nation's worst COVID-19 outbreak. 

The changes include new requirements for children as young as 2 to start wearing masks. That's already recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which acknowledges mask-wearing might be challenging for some young children, such as those with certain disabilities, including cognitive, intellectual, developmental, sensory and behavioral disorders.
