Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Thursday repeated her plea to Michigan residents to limit gatherings at Thanksgiving and keep loved ones safe.

Whitmer’s appeal came as the state health department reported 7,592 new confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 134 deaths, including 61 that were added after a records review.

“We’re preserving future holiday gatherings together by taking this seriously now, by not gathering with people outside of your household this Thanksgiving,” Whitmer said. “It is an act of kindness and love.”
