[ARCHIVED] Face Coverings

2020 07-10 Face Covering Required

On Friday, July 10, 2020, Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-147, which requires that individuals wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when:

  • in any indoor public space and
  • outdoors and unable to consistently maintain a distance of six feet or more from other individuals.

Exceptions to this order include those who:

  • are five years old or younger;
  • cannot medically tolerate a face covering;
  • are eating or drinking while seated at a food establishment;
    ... as well as other exceptions. 

The order states that businesses must enforce the wearing of face coverings in their place of business, beginning Monday, July 13 at 12:01 AM. Further, businesses must post signs at entrances instructing customers of their legal obligation to wear a face covering while inside.  Willful violation of this order may result in a misdemeanor and a $500 fine.  Visit to obtain guidance for COVID-19 Workplace Safety and download printable posters.
