Good afternoon, .

As Michigan begins its incremental reopening, now is the time for manufacturers to develop and execute plans to resume in-person operations. Executive Order 2020-70, issued just last Friday, allows additional segments of previously suspended work to resume. In addition to construction, building trades and real estate, effective at midnight tonight, workers critical to modifying workplaces to forestall the spread of COVID-19 infections may resume operations.
