To reduce confusion following last Friday’s Supreme Court decision, the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS) has issued orders that mirror executive orders that prevent and control the spread of COVID-19.
This order covers the following:
- Masks must be worn over nose and mouth in gatherings of two or more people, including stores, offices, schools and events. Businesses cannot admit people without masks, with few exceptions.
- Capacity limits apply to indoor and outdoor gatherings, including business, social and recreational settings. They’re stricter inside.
- Restaurants and bars must limit capacity for gatherings, and may only serve alcohol to parties who are seated, 6 feet apart, and stay separate.
- Employees who are in isolation or quarantine because of COVID-19 exposure, symptoms or test results cannot go to work with others, or be required to go to work with others.
