LANSING, Mich. — Michigan now has 5,266 deaths and 55,104 cases of coronavirus, the state reported Tuesday.

That's up 223 cases and 26 deaths since Monday.

Overall, 33,168 people have recovered from the virus, the state said. Those numbers are updated every Saturday.

Retail stores and auto dealerships in Michigan opened on Tuesday after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order last week.

Those stores will have to adhere to many new restrictions as we deal with life amid the coronavirus outbreak. It's part of phase 4 of the state's opening plan.
