COVID-19 Mandatory Closures: Michigan Executive Order 2020-21 Frequently Asked Questions

March 25, 2020

As Michigan businesses and individuals continue to adjust to Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order No. 2020-21 issued on March 23, 2020, questions abound as to what activities and business operations are deemed permissible. As a result of this ongoing uncertainty, the governor’s office created a Frequently Asked Questions page to address ambiguities under the executive order.

While the Michigan FAQs do not address all uncertainty, certain questions relating to auto dealerships, home repair businesses, construction firms, real estate agents, brokers and service employees, as well as other general questions relating to essential business designations and critical infrastructure workers, are answered. We anticipate additional questions and answers to be posted from time to time. Varnum attorneys stand ready to assist you directly.
