CMDHD COVID-19 Information Update – 06.05.2020

Executive Order Updates

As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, the Governor’s office has been releasing new executive orders to adjust and evaluate restrictions that have been previously put in place to protect the health of Michigan Residents.

On June 5, 2020, Executive Order 2020-115 was issued. This order moves Roscommon County into Phase 5 of reopening (Arenac, Isabella, Clare, Osceola, and Gladwin Counties are still in Phase 4).

On June 10, gyms, hair salons, indoor theaters, tattoo parlors, and similar establishments will be permitted to reopen in Roscommon County, subject to strict workplace safeguards. Indoor social gatherings and organized events of up to 50 people will be allowed, as will outdoor social gatherings and organized events of up to 250 people.

The Governor also announced today that personal care services—including hair and nail salons—can reopen statewide as of June 15, 2020. Now that new segments of the economy are re-opening, the requirements for businesses to open safely have been updated as well. These measures are designed to protect employees as well as clients. These requirements are now contained in Executive Order 2020-114.

For all Michiganders, as of now, indoor social gathering of fewer than 50 people are allowed, and outdoor gatherings of fewer than 250 people are also allowed but continue to keep 6-ft between people who are not of the same household. For specific information about certain types of venues and restrictions, please reference the order (Executive Order 2020-110). 

Michiganders should still wear face masks when in enclosed public spaces, stay 6-ft away from others when in public spaces, and wash hands frequently to protect themselves and loved ones. Working from home whenever possible is strongly encouraged.

This partial and gradual reopening gives the state’s public health team a chance to evaluate the effects of allowing these activities to resume and assess the capacity of the health care systems response to any increase in infections.
