Does DIFS have the authority to hold a licensee/registrant accountable if a licensee/registrant does not comply with an executive order?
Yes. DIFS will prioritize enforcement of COVID-19-related laws among its regulated entities. Executive Directive 2020-08 requires State of Michigan departments to consider violations of law when determining eligibility for licensing and treat non-compliance as presumptive evidence of a public health hazard. DIFS issued a press release on August 17, 2020 with more information.
