What does the state lockdown order mean? How will it affect my business? We answer all of these questions in our new manual, where we will explain the necessary steps for your small business under the new executive order. This will help you determine if your small business should remain open at this time, and how to conduct operations depending on your circumstances.
Executive Order 2020-21 signed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer Monday, March 23 broadly commands Michiganders to stay home and at their place of residence and broadly prohibits in-person work deemed non-essential by the State. The order is effective from 12:01 AM on Tuesday, March 24 to the provisional end date of Monday, April 13 at 11:59PM. The executive order only allows only two types of work to continue: Critical Infrastructure Work, a category defined by the Department of Homeland Security, and Minimum Basic Operations Work, vital limited operations defined by the State of Michigan.
