This table and map attempt to summarize Governor Whitmer's executive orders related to COVID-19. The executive order should always be reviewed, and in the event of a conflict between the order and this table, the order controls.
Regions on this map and table were created by analyzing work and commuting patterns. The colors in this map indicate the phase of the MI Safe Start Plan for each region. The phase is based on a variety of factors including: (1) data on COVID-19 infections and the disease's rate of spread; (2) whether sufficient medical personnel, hospital beds, and ventilators exist to meet anticipated medical need; (3) the availability of personal protective equipment for the health care workforce; (4) the state's capacity to test for COVID-19 cases and isolate infected people; and (5) economic conditions in the state.
Businesses are subject to these orders and may also be subject to guidance issued by MIOSHA, LARA, and other state agencies where applicable. Social distancing and mask requirements apply to all activities listed in the table.
