New Epidemic Order Loosens Some Restrictions

A new Epidemic Order issued today by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) permits additional in-person activities beginning Monday, 12/21/20, and extending through Friday, 1/15/21.

Manufacturing work that is impossible to do remotely continues to be permitted and work that can be done remotely must continue to be performed remotely. But, under the new order, high school students may return to in-person instruction as determined by the local school district and some indoor entertainment facilities may re-open subject to capacity limitations.

The following resources have been released by MDHHS:
