Governor Whitmer has begun lifting COVID-19 Business Restrictions
Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce and Saginaw Future Inc. Provide Resources for Business Reopening
Saginaw, Mich., part of the Great Lakes Bay Region, April 24, 2020 -
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has begun lifting COVID-19 restrictions on some businesses, which can begin reopening. Landscapers, lawn-service companies, plant nurseries and bike repair shops can resume operating, subject to social-distancing rules. Stores selling nonessential supplies can reopen for curbside pickup and delivery. Big-box retailers no longer have to close off garden centers and areas dedicated to selling paint, flooring and carpet.
The most important goal for Saginaw County and Michigan is to stop the spread of Covid-19. As Michigan develops and implements appropriate policies, in accordance with federal, state and local regulations, the Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce and Saginaw Future Inc. have researched re-opening plans and playbooks for our businesses to begin to prepare for re-opening.

Governor Whitmer’s order continues to prohibit in-person work that is not necessary to sustain or protect life, with exemptions for various critical jobs. Restaurants remain closed to dine-in customers under a separate measure, and bars, movie theaters, gyms and other sports facilities are still shuttered.
