Executive Order 2020-162: Amendment to Executive Order 2020-160 - RESCINDED

EXECUTIVE ORDER

 

No. 2020-162

 

Amendment to Executive Order 2020-160

 

Executive Order 2020-115, which previously applied in Regions 6 and 8, provided that any work that could be performed remotely should be performed remotely. Businesses in other regions were subject to a tighter standard under Executive Order 2020-110: any work that could be performed remotely must be performed remotely. Executive Order 2020-160 collapsed the two orders but inadvertently subjected all regions to the tighter standard. This amendment clarifies that businesses in Regions 6 and 8 remain subject to the prior standard.

 

Acting under the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and Michigan law, I find it reasonable and necessary, for the reasons outlined above, to order:

 

  1. The restriction described in section 1 of Executive Order 2020-160 does not apply in Regions 6 and 8. Instead, in Regions 6 and 8, any work that is capable of being performed remotely (i.e., without the worker leaving his or her home or place of residence) should be performed remotely.
