DEARBORN – Under Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order, residents are reminded that they are prohibited from being able to gather with those who do not live in their household, to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The governor’s executive order states, with some narrow exceptions, that all public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring among persons not part of a single household are prohibited.
Residents may leave their homes for a limited number of reasons and must follow social distancing guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, such as remaining six feet away from people outside the individual’s household. Among the limited reasons include caring for a family member; performing critical infrastructure work after being so designated by their employer; seeking necessary medical care or medication for themselves, their family or household members; or to obtain necessary services or supplies for themselves, their family or household members.
