In response to Covid-19, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued a ‘shelter-in-place’ order (23 March 2020) for all Michigan residents except essential services to “Stay home”. Under limited conditions people can leave their homes but must adhere to a new measure recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention – “Social Distancing”.
