Three—  A proposal to ban fracking in Michigan could land on the ballot in November. The state appeals court last week ruled in favor of fracking opponents and revived their effort to present the issue to voters. The court said state election officials were wrong to reject petitions with more than 270,000 signatures in 2018.

Three—  Two Walmart employees in the Chicago area died from the coronavirus, prompting the retailer to adopt additional safety measures in the wake of the pandemic. It's unclear how long either of the employees had the virus. It's also unclear whether COVID-19 was contracted on the job.

And number one— The number of new COVID-19 cases reported in Michigan Sunday was about the same as on Saturday, while the number of total deaths from the virus now stands at 617. The hot spot in Michigan for COVID-19 cases remains southeast Michigan. Detroit reported 537 new cases Sunday, bringing the city’s total up to 4,495
