On Monday, Gov. Whitmer lifted Michigan’s Safer at Home order as the state moves to the Phase 4 of the MI Safe Start Plan.
In the coming days, retail businesses, some offices, day camps, swimming pools, outdoor fitness classes, libraries, and restaurants and bars may begin reopening as long as they adopt proper safety measures, practices and training, including:
- Implementing workplace infection-control practices;
- Training employees to properly use personal protective equipment (PPE);
- Informing workers on the steps they must take to notify their employers of any symptoms of COVID-19 or a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19; and
- Teaching workers how to report unsafe workplace conditions.
These activities can begin immediately:
Outdoor social gatherings of up to 100 people are allowed immediately, but residents are encouraged to continue taking precautions to prevent a resurgence of COVID-19.
Office work may resume where remote work is not possible.
Beginning Thursday, June 4:
Retail stores may reopen and serve customers without an appointment, but they must continue following strict social distancing guidelines. Customers are still required to wear masks.
Beginning Monday, June 8:
Restaurants and bars may reopen statewide with limited capacity while maintaining social distancing. Servers must wear masks and all other employees must follow rigorous disinfection protocols. Patrons are required to wear masks until they are seated at their table.
Day camps and swimming pools can begin reopening with limited capacity.
This executive order still allows for cities, villages, townships and other local entities to choose to take a more cautious course of re-engagement if they wish.
