Gretchen Whitmer said : "It’s crucial that all businesses do everything in their power to protect their workers, customers, and their families. And as we approach Memorial Day weekend, I encourage everyone to be smart and be safe. My team and I will continue to work around the clock to protect the people of Michigan”. Which parts of Michigan are affected? There are two very specific regions of Michigan reopening, and they include areas that haven’t been hit as hard by the coronavirus (COVID-19). Whitmer said the entire Upper Peninsula, which is designated as region eight in her “MI Safe Start” plan, is included in this order. MORE Republicans say Whitmer starting to reopen Michigan is ‘better late than never’ The other region, known as region six, is the northernmost part of the Lower Peninsula. Here are the counties included in that region: Antrim; Alpena; Benzie; Charlevoix; Cheboygan; Crawford; Emmet; Grand Traverse; Kalkaska; Leelanau; Manistee; Missaukee; Montmorency; Otsego; Presque Isle; Roscommon; Wexford. Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, the Chief Deputy for Health at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the state’s chief medical executive, said these locations were chosen because of their recent trends. MORE Why Northern Michigan was chosen for next phase of Whitmer’s reopening plan “The data shows that these regions in Michigan are seeing consistent encouraging trends when it comes to the number of cases, deaths, and the percent of tests that are positive for COVID-19,” Khaldun said. “It’s important to note that these businesses must take special precautions to protect Michiganders. I also encourage everyone to continue to wear a mask in public, maintain a six-foot distance from others, and to remain vigilant in washing their hands often. This will help prevent a second surge in cases in our state”. What is reopening? Whitmer announced at her Monday coronavirus briefing that several types of businesses will be allowed to reopen. Restaurants; Bars; Retail businesses; Office jobs that can’t be done remotely. Restaurants and bars will be allowed to open at 50% capacity, and all servers must wear masks, Whitmer said. Individual groups of people at bars and restaurants will have to be separated by at least six feet. Only office workers whose jobs cannot be done remotely can return to work, Whitmer said. Retail business will also be allowed to reopen, but companies must provide personal protective equipment to workers, keep everyone six feet apart and ensure employees understand how to safely maneuver in this environment. Cities, villages and townships can choose to enforce more cautious rules if they wish. They can even limit bars and restaurants to outdoor seating, if they choose. Businesses, medical procedures partially reopened statewide. On Thursday, Whitmer announced she is partially reopening businesses and lifting medical restrictions across the entire state. She is also allowing Michiganders to gather in groups of up to 10 people , as the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to slow across the state. Whitmer said retail businesses can reopen, as well as auto dealerships by appointment, on Tuesday. Retail businesses that reopen can have up to 10 customers inside at any time, Whitmer said. Whitmer also lifted the restrictions on health care providers who had to delay some nonessential medical, dental and veterinary procedures. Those procedures can resume Friday, May 29. More on safety protocols. All businesses that reopen have to adopt specific safety measures outlined in Whitmer’s executive order. Here are some of those measures: Provide COVID-19 training to workers that covers, at a minimum, workplace infection-control practices, the proper use of PPE, steps workers must take to notify the business or operation of any symptoms of COVID-19 or a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, and how to report unsafe working conditions. Restaurants and bars will also have to limit capacity to 50% of their normal seating. Restaurants and bars must keep groups at least six feet from one another. Businesses must require workers to wear face coverings. Businesses must follow rigorous disinfection protocols. “Because we continue to fight this virus, nobody in Michigan should feel unsafe when they go back to work,” Whitmer said. “Nobody should be worried about their family member or loved one while they’re at work. As we move forward, I’m going to continue to closely monitor the data and work with my partners in business and labor to ensure the safety of our workforce”. She said businesses that resume in-person work must develop a COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan and submit that to the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity by June 1. Businesses need to make these plans ready and available for their workers so they can review them and have confidence in their workplace safety, Whitmer said. “Going to work is going to feel different for a little while,” Whitmer said. “These are big changes, and we’re all adapting to them, but they’re absolutely necessary for the continued protection of our families, and they’re crucial as we continue to face (difficulties) in sectors of our economy, in regions across Michigan, to help ensure that this process runs smoothly”. Whitmer also signed an executive directive calling for the appointment of a Director of COVID-19 Worker Safety in the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity. Each department and agency in the state government that’s responsible for enforcing workplace health and safety standards will monitor workplaces to make sure they’re in compliance with the rules, Whitmer said. Departments will ensure businesses have all the information they need so that they can protect their employees, and they’ll work around the clock to ensure that everyone is following the rules, according to the governor. “These rules are not optional," External link

Gretchen Whitmer told : "Anyone who has potentially been recently exposed, including the president of the United States, has not only a legal responsibility, but also a social and moral responsibility, to take reasonable precautions to prevent further spread of the virus,” Nessel said. At least two people who work in the White House and had been physically close to Trump recently tested positive for the virus. Trump is tested daily; the White House says he remains negative. An executive order issued by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer requires factories to suspend all nonessential in-person visits, including tours, though Nessel said her office would not bar Trump. The Republican president and Whitmer, a Democrat, have clashed during the coronavirus outbreak over her criticism of the federal government's response to the state's needs for medical equipment, like ventilators, and personal protective gear, such as gloves, masks and gowns. In the early days of the crisis, Whitmer and other governors and medical workers clamored for ventilators, fearing a shortage of the machines would prove deadly as the virus made breathing difficult for the scores of afflicted patients who were being brought to hospitals. But the U.S. now has a surplus of the breathing machines, leading Trump to begin describing the U.S. as the “king of ventilators”.

Gretchen Whitmer said : "It’s crucial that all businesses do everything in their power to protect their workers, customers, and their families. And as we approach Memorial Day weekend, I encourage everyone to be smart and be safe. My team and I will continue to work around the clock to protect the people of Michigan”. Which parts of Michigan are affected? There are two very specific regions of Michigan reopening, and they include areas that haven’t been hit as hard by the coronavirus (COVID-19). Whitmer said the entire Upper Peninsula, which is designated as region eight in her “MI Safe Start” plan, is included in this order. MORE Republicans say Whitmer starting to reopen Michigan is ‘better late than never’ The other region, known as region six, is the northernmost part of the Lower Peninsula. Here are the counties included in that region: Antrim; Alpena; Benzie; Charlevoix; Cheboygan; Crawford; Emmet; Grand Traverse; Kalkaska; Leelanau; Manistee; Missaukee; Montmorency; Otsego; Presque Isle; Roscommon; Wexford. Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, the Chief Deputy for Health at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the state’s chief medical executive, said these locations were chosen because of their recent trends. MORE Why Northern Michigan was chosen for next phase of Whitmer’s reopening plan “The data shows that these regions in Michigan are seeing consistent encouraging trends when it comes to the number of cases, deaths, and the percent of tests that are positive for COVID-19,” Khaldun said. “It’s important to note that these businesses must take special precautions to protect Michiganders. I also encourage everyone to continue to wear a mask in public, maintain a six-foot distance from others, and to remain vigilant in washing their hands often. This will help prevent a second surge in cases in our state”. What is reopening? Whitmer announced at her Monday coronavirus briefing that several types of businesses will be allowed to reopen. Restaurants; Bars; Retail businesses; Office jobs that can’t be done remotely. Restaurants and bars will be allowed to open at 50% capacity, and all servers must wear masks, Whitmer said. Individual groups of people at bars and restaurants will have to be separated by at least six feet. Only office workers whose jobs cannot be done remotely can return to work, Whitmer said. Retail business will also be allowed to reopen, but companies must provide personal protective equipment to workers, keep everyone six feet apart and ensure employees understand how to safely maneuver in this environment. Cities, villages and townships can choose to enforce more cautious rules if they wish. They can even limit bars and restaurants to outdoor seating, if they choose. Businesses, medical procedures partially reopened statewide. On Thursday, Whitmer announced she is partially reopening businesses and lifting medical restrictions across the entire state. She is also allowing Michiganders to gather in groups of up to 10 people , as the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to slow across the state. Whitmer said retail businesses can reopen, as well as auto dealerships by appointment, on Tuesday. Retail businesses that reopen can have up to 10 customers inside at any time, Whitmer said. Whitmer also lifted the restrictions on health care providers who had to delay some nonessential medical, dental and veterinary procedures. Those procedures can resume Friday, May 29. More on safety protocols. All businesses that reopen have to adopt specific safety measures outlined in Whitmer’s executive order. Here are some of those measures: Provide COVID-19 training to workers that covers, at a minimum, workplace infection-control practices, the proper use of PPE, steps workers must take to notify the business or operation of any symptoms of COVID-19 or a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, and how to report unsafe working conditions. Restaurants and bars will also have to limit capacity to 50% of their normal seating. Restaurants and bars must keep groups at least six feet from one another. Businesses must require workers to wear face coverings. Businesses must follow rigorous disinfection protocols. “Because we continue to fight this virus, nobody in Michigan should feel unsafe when they go back to work,” Whitmer said. “Nobody should be worried about their family member or loved one while they’re at work. As we move forward, I’m going to continue to closely monitor the data and work with my partners in business and labor to ensure the safety of our workforce”. She said businesses that resume in-person work must develop a COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan and submit that to the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity by June 1. Businesses need to make these plans ready and available for their workers so they can review them and have confidence in their workplace safety, Whitmer said. “Going to work is going to feel different for a little while,” Whitmer said. “These are big changes, and we’re all adapting to them, but they’re absolutely necessary for the continued protection of our families, and they’re crucial as we continue to face (difficulties) in sectors of our economy, in regions across Michigan, to help ensure that this process runs smoothly”. Whitmer also signed an executive directive calling for the appointment of a Director of COVID-19 Worker Safety in the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity. Each department and agency in the state government that’s responsible for enforcing workplace health and safety standards will monitor workplaces to make sure they’re in compliance with the rules, Whitmer said. Departments will ensure businesses have all the information they need so that they can protect their employees, and they’ll work around the clock to ensure that everyone is following the rules, according to the governor. “These rules are not optional," External link

Gretchen Whitmer told : "Anyone who has potentially been recently exposed, including the president of the United States, has not only a legal responsibility, but also a social and moral responsibility, to take reasonable precautions to prevent further spread of the virus,” Nessel said. At least two people who work in the White House and had been physically close to Trump recently tested positive for the virus. Trump is tested daily; the White House says he remains negative. An executive order issued by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer requires factories to suspend all nonessential in-person visits, including tours, though Nessel said her office would not bar Trump. The Republican president and Whitmer, a Democrat, have clashed during the coronavirus outbreak over her criticism of the federal government's response to the state's needs for medical equipment, like ventilators, and personal protective gear, such as gloves, masks and gowns. In the early days of the crisis, Whitmer and other governors and medical workers clamored for ventilators, fearing a shortage of the machines would prove deadly as the virus made breathing difficult for the scores of afflicted patients who were being brought to hospitals. But the U.S. now has a surplus of the breathing machines, leading Trump to begin describing the U.S. as the “king of ventilators”.
