Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced in a press conference today that Michigan's stay at home order has been extended through May 15, 2020. The previous order was set to expire on April 30th and implemented restrictions such as prohibiting travel between residences, the sale of certain goods from big-box stores, and lawn service operations. This week, Michigan has started to see its numbers of new confirmed cases each day drop from previous weeks.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board order currently in place  closing casinos extends through April 30 and can be found here. We will continue to monitor any extensions of that order by the Michigan Gaming Control Board. 

"We can now start the process of gradually resuming in-person work and activities that were temporarily suspended under my prior orders," Governor Whitmer states in Executive Order 2020-59.

Executive Order 2020-59 reaffirms the shelter-in-place order, requiring people to stay 6 feet away from others, follow CDC guidelines, and wear a mask in public. Businesses deemed nonessential are still required to remain closed at this time.   

Additionally, there are several restrictions that have been loosened from the previous order. Permitted recreational activities now include boating and golfing, which were previously prohibited. Individuals may now travel between two residences in the State, with the exception of traveling to vacation rentals.

Garden stores, nurseries, and lawn care services are permitted to resume operations, as are bicycle repair workers and groundskeepers. Stores are permitted to sell goods other than necessary supplies and should consider curbside pick-up options.

The full text of Executive Order 2020-59 can be read here. Daily updates and statistics of coronavirus in Michigan can be found at www.michigan.gov/coronavirus.
