Coronavirus / COVID-19 Michigan Update :: 06.09.2020

Governor Whitmer has issued multiple executive orders the past couple of weeks regarding Michigan Stay Home – Stay Safe and MI Safe Start: A Plan to Re-engage Michigan’s Economy


The temporary extension of the Freedom of Information Act deadlines expires on June 11, 2020, and the current executive order specifically authorizing remote public meetings is set to expire on June 30, 2020.
