Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Issues New Emergency Order


Today, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issued a new emergency order targeting indoor social gatherings and other group activities in an effort to curb rapidly rising COVID-19 infection rates. This order is in place for three weeks.

Under this order, indoor residential gatherings are limited to two households at any one-time. However, MDHHS strongly urges families to pick a single other household to interact with over the next three weeks, consistent with new guidance released by the department.

This order comes due to the rapid number of cases developing around residential and non-residential gatherings.

This order includes:

  • Bars and restaurants will be open for outdoor dining, carry-out, and delivery only
  • Gyms will remain open for individual exercise with strict safety measures in place
  • Casinos, movie theaters, and group exercise classes will be closed
  • Professional and college sports meeting extraordinary standards for risk mitigation may continue without spectators, however all other organized sports must stop
  • Colleges and high schools may proceed with remote learning but must end in-person classes.
