LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is warning that Michigan on average has more confirmed daily cases of the coronavirus than ever, noting a sharp increase since the state Supreme Court invalidated her sweeping orders earlier this month.

Since the court decision on Oct. 2, the seven-day case average is up to 1,818 - nearly double.

The governor says Michigan is at a “dangerous moment.”

She pleaded Wednesday for people to wear a mask and socially distance.

Meanwhile, a chiropractor in western Michigan has challenged the state’s mask rule in court, saying that Whitmer’s health department has no authority to make masks mandatory.
