Following protests in Ohio and North Carolina, conservative protesters in Michigan took to the state capital Wednesday to rally against stay-at-home orders. Workers who want to go back to their jobs argue the measures are excessive.

But in one of the states with the highest number of coronavirus cases in the country, Michigan's Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer argues the orders are needed for public health and that protesters may have made the situation worse.

WKAR's Abigail Censky (@AbigailCensky) talks to Robin Young about what she saw at the protest in Lansing.
