The national coronavirus outbreak triggered a state of emergency response at the state level on March 10 followed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer announcing the closure of all K–12 school buildings until April 5.[5][149][1] Face-to-face instruction for all Michigan schools was later suspended for the remainder of the 2019–20 school year, with guidelines implemented to transition students to home learning formats.[150] On March 16, Governor Whitmer ordered bars, restaurants, entertainment venues, and other businesses to partially close for two weeks and later banned events and gatherings of more than 50 from March 17 – April 5.[151][152] On March 24, a statewide stay-at-home order was issued, limiting all non-essential travel and discontinuing all non-essential business services and operations.[9] It was originally set to expire on April 13, but was extended until April 30 with several new social distancing restrictions.[153] The order was later extended to May 15, with some restrictions lifted and others added, such as mandatory face-covering usage in public buildings and businesses.[24] The order was later extended again until May 28 and added modifications of the restrictions from previous orders.[29][30] The face mask requirement was a factor in the killing of a security guard at a Family Dollar store in Flint after a woman refused to wear a mask and was denied entry, leading to the arrests of a family of four people, in which a 23-year-old man was charged with first-degree murder.[27][28] Governor Whitmer has since extended the face mask requirement until July 15.[154] On July 10, she extended the requirement and added a provision in which businesses can be fined $500 for not enforcing it and customers may be refused service for failing to wear one.[155]

The state legislature approved $125 million to aid in relief efforts on March 17, and Governor Gretchen Whitmer called in the Michigan Army National Guard to assist with supply distribution the next day.[156][157] The state legislature allocated an additional $150 million for medical supplies and personal protective equipment for hospitals on March 30.[158] Governor Whitmer requested a major disaster declaration on March 26, which President Donald Trump granted on March 28.[159]

Several of the restrictions on businesses and medical facilities were lifted in late May.[160] Governor Whitmer has issued several states of emergency, the latest of which expired on October 27.[52] On June 1, the Governor announced that the stay at home order was partially lifted and that Michigan was in stage four of its six-stage re-opening plan.[161] Outdoor crowds of up to 100 people are allowed starting June 1. Restaurants and bars began re-opening for indoor dining services starting June 8, and other restrictions on businesses were loosened.[162] Hair and nail salons, barbershops, and tattoo and massage parlors were allowed to reopen on June 15.[163] Starting July 31, indoor gatherings will be limited to 10 people and bars will be closed for indoor service and outdoor gatherings to 100.[164] On August 14, Governor Whitmer announced four million masks will be distributed to vulnerable populations in Michigan.[165] Movie theaters and other entertainment venues were allowed to re-open on October 9.[53]

On October 22, Governor Whitmer signed several bills that protect workers from the spread of coronavirus on the job and protect businesses from lawsuits related to people contracting COVID-19 if they are following all prevention mandates.[166]

On October 29, the MDHHS issued a new mask mandate and crowd size limitations for public places, businesses, private gatherings, and restaurants.[167]

On November 15, after several days of record highs in new cases, Governor Whitmer announced the MDHHS has ordered the closure of several businesses and services for three weeks, effective November 18. Specifically, high schools and universities are closed to in-person learning, and organized sports (except for professional) are on hiatus. Businesses ordered to close include live theaters, movie theaters, stadiums, arenas, bowling centers, ice skating rinks, indoor water parks, bingo halls, casinos, arcades, and group fitness classes.[68]

Education[edit]

As of March 11, all campuses of the Lake Superior State University, University of Michigan, Western Michigan University, Wayne State University, Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, Michigan State University, Grand Valley State University, Saginaw Valley State University, Central Michigan University, and all community colleges, had various restrictions on students and faculty in response to the virus.[168][169][170]

Executive Order 2020-05 also included the closure of all K–12 school buildings from March 16 through April 5 (Executive Order 2020-05).[149] On April 2, the order was updated to suspend the remainder of the 2019–20 school year unless crisis restrictions are otherwise lifted. The order included guidelines for the development and distribution of home learning materials. Additionally, all high school seniors will be given the opportunity to graduate on their previously anticipated date.[150]

Additionally, on March 13, the Michigan Department of Education was granted a federal waiver by the United States Department of Agriculture. The waiver allowed for students who will receive food from the Unanticipated School Closure SFSP to not be mandated to receive the food in a group setting.[171] The Michigan Department of Corrections banned visitors to prisons, along with prohibiting any volunteers from the prison. Staff at prisons will be required to have their temperature tested and be proven to be under 100.4 °F (38.0 °C) along with other measures.[172] The Michigan Career and Technical Institute suspended all programs until April 5.[173]

On June 30, Governor Whitmer released the state's "Return to School Roadmap" containing three proposed plans for re-opening K-12 schools for the upcoming 2020–21 school year.[33]

On August 18, Michigan State University moved all classes for the fall 2020 semester to virtual learning.[43]

On August 19, it was announced the state's public schools, especially low-income school districts, are receiving a combined $65 million for virtual learning technology.[174]

August 24, Eastern Michigan University postponed its date for students to move onto campus from August 27 to September 17. It began its fall semester online on August 31, but will transition the small number of classes that were scheduled to be in-person to a near fully online schedule through September 20.[175]

Businesses[edit]

On March 13, with Executive Order 2020–05, the Governor banned all gatherings of 250 or more people in a single space starting that day.[176] The ban made exceptions for residential facilities and child care services at schools in addition to exemptions for consumers buying groceries or products, for industrial and manufacturing work, and for public transport and other forms of mass transit (Executive Order 2020-05) [177] The ban was lowered to 50 people on March 16 per a CDC recommendation and is effective from March 17 – April 5.[151] The order was later updated to exclude houses of worship from penalty if they convened more than 50 people.[178]

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson issued an order starting March 16 to limit all Michigan Secretary of State branch offices to appointment-only instead of walk-ins. The only services provided by the offices will be for those applying for new licenses and IDs, for title transfers, and for testing for a license. All branches will no longer be open on Saturdays, with most weekday hours expanding. For those renewing their licenses, the proof of car insurance requirement was waived. Also waived were late fees associated with the change.[179]

On March 10, Attorney General Dana Nessel set up a hotline to report businesses price gouging goods such as toilet paper, meat, milk, bread, bottled water, face masks, hand sanitizers, and cleaning supplies. Sellers face fines if their asking price is at least 20% higher than it was on March 9, after an executive order from Governor Whitmer banned the practice, until April 16. The order includes a clause that exempts retailers if they "can prove the increase is attributable to an increase in cost of bringing the product to market or an extraordinary discount was in effect as of March 9".[180] As of March 19, at least 800 complaints have been received.[181] On March 19, Nessel sent a cease and desist letter to Menards after her investigators found evidence of price hikes, sometimes doubling the retail cost, on high-demand bleach and 3M face masks. In other instances, tipsters reported seeing face masks that cost $10 each, cases of water for $35, and bottles of hand sanitizer for $60. Whitmer issued a second order on March 20 which "focuses enforcement resources on the cases most pertinent to the emergency by clarifying which price increases constitute price gouging."[182] As of April 14, 3,541 complaints have been received.[183]

On March 20, Governor Whitmer signed an executive order banning landlords from filing eviction requests against tenants until April 17, which she says "relieves courts from certain statutory restrictions to enable them to stay eviction-related proceedings until after the COVID-19 emergency has passed".[184] Also on that date, Whitmer signed an executive order for medical and dental facilities to postpone any "non-essential" procedures, such as plastic surgery and teeth whitening, beginning March 20 through the time the State of Emergency is lifted.[185] On March 21, Whitmer issued an executive order to close facilities that provide non-essential personal care services such as hair and nail salons, tanning salons, spas, and businesses that offer massages, tattoos, body art, and piercings, until April 13.[186] On March 30, Governor Whitmer signed an executive order banning non-essential veterinary visits.[187]

On May 18, Governor Whitmer issued two executive orders, one prohibiting factories from giving tours[188] and another requiring people to cover their faces in indoor public spaces.[189] The former requirement was waived to allow President Trump to visit a Ford manufacturing plant in Ypsilanti on May 21. While touring the plant (which was producing ventilators and personal protective equipment), Trump had a mask with the presidential seal but did not wear it on camera, saying he "didn't want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it." Michigan's attorney general Dana Nessel said she expected to "have a very serious conversation with Ford" for enabling the violation of the face-covering requirement, adding the president had sent "the worst possible message" and that he would no longer be welcome to tour facilities in the state.[190] Governor Whitmer also signed an executive order on March 21 allowing gatherings of 10 people or less at retail stores by appointment only.[191] Some malls opened as early as March 28 and some automobile showrooms reopened after the executive order was made.[192][193] Tribal casinos plan to reopen on May 29.[194]

After the flooding in Midland due to two dams breaking on May 20 forcing mass evacuations, Senator Jim Stamas asks Governor Whitmer to reopen restaurants in the area.[195][196]

On June 11, Governor Whitmer extended the freeze on residential evictions for non-payment of rent to June 30.[197] According to the Executive Order signed by Governor Whitmer, on June 10, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Northern Michigan and on June 15 personal care services will reopen.[198]

On August 21, the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) cited six businesses with coronavirus health and safety violations, including lack of health screenings, face coverings, employee training, cleaning measures, and overall preparedness plans. Each faces a $7,000 fine.[199]

On September 17, another 19 businesses were fined by MIOSHA for "serious violations" of COVID-19 safety protocols.[200]

On October 2, it was announced ten more business were cited for violating COVID-19 safety guidelines.[201]

Economic relief[edit]

On March 17, the Michigan Legislature approved $125 million to fight the pandemic, with $50 million going towards the Department of Health and Human Services and another $40 million towards other state agencies for ongoing coronavirus response needs. Another $35 million was set in reserve in case more funding becomes necessary in the future.[156] On March 18, Governor Whitmer asked the Michigan Army National Guard to "assist the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services with assembling and loading critical personal protective equipment, such as gloves, gowns, and face shields."[157] In response to widespread rumors that were circulating regarding the National Guard's presence in the state, Whitmer reaffirmed on March 20 that there were no active plans to implement martial law, although she did indicate that state officials were monitoring the effectiveness of lock-down protocols in other states, should they become necessary.[202] On March 30, the legislature allocated an additional $150 million to purchase supplies to fight the pandemic.[158] President Donald Trump approved Governor Whitmer's disaster declaration on March 28.[203] Michigan will get about $2 billion from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) signed into law on March 27.[204] On August 5, it was announced small businesses in Michigan will receive a combined total of $5.7 million from the CARES Act.[205]

Stay-at-home orders[edit]

On March 23, Governor Whitmer issued a statewide stay-at-home order, starting the morning of Tuesday, March 24, and lasting for at least three weeks, until April 13.[9] It was later extended until April 30, and then re-extended until May 15, and once more until May 30.[24][153][29] "Stay Home, Stay Safe", Executive Order 2020–21 directed all businesses and operations to temporarily suspend in-person services that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. The order directed residents to remain "in their homes unless they’re a part of an essential workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, like going to the hospital, or grocery store." When leaving the house, individuals must adhere to social distancing measures, as directed by the CDC.[9] The next stay-at-home order, Executive Order 2020–42, signed April 9, closed golf courses, disallowed recreational boating and travel to vacation homes in the state, and banned customers from shopping in non-essential sections of retail stores and businesses, including carpeting, flooring, furniture, garden centers, plant nurseries or paint.[20][21][22][23] Failure to abide by the order could have resulted in a $1,000 fine or 90 days in jail.[206] On April 7, the state of emergency was extended until April 30.[207] It was later extended it until May 28 which modifies some of the restrictions of previous orders.[25] On April 15, Governor Whitmer ordered nursing homes to transfer coronavirus patients to separate units or special facilities and banned evictions from nursing homes. The order was in effect until May 13.[208] On April 17, Governor Whitmer outlined a plan to re-open the state's economy starting May 1, after her latest stay at home order expired.[209] The stay-at-home order was later extended to May 15, with some restrictions from the second one lifted and others added. The controversial bans of recreational boating and travel to vacation homes were removed, while non-medical grade face coverings in public became mandatory starting April 26. Several businesses and sections of stores were allowed to reopen, including those gardening supplies and paint, as well as golf courses, but Airbnb rentals were banned.[24] The next stay-at-home order modified some of the restrictions from previous orders and allowed manufacturing to restart on May 11.[30] On April 27, Governor Whitmer signed an executive order placing several new regulations on restaurant and grocery stores and their employees.[210] On May 18, Governor Whitmer announced bars and restaurant dining rooms in the Northern Lower Peninsula and the Upper Peninsula would be allowed to open on May 22.[211] She later announced retail stores and auto dealerships may reopen on May 26 and nonessential medical, dental, and veterinary procedures may begin on May 29.[160] On May 22, Governor Whitmer extended the stay-at-home order until June 12 and the state of emergency until June 19.[31] On July 14, Governor Whitmer extended the state of emergency again until August 11.[212] A month later Whitmer issued a new order which expires September 4.[36] The newest emergency order expired October 27.[52] On April 16, Governor Whitmer joined the governors of Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky to coordinate a plan to reopen the Midwest regional economy.[213]

Testing[edit]

During the week of March 16, Michigan Medicine started in-house testing for COVID-19, with the capabilities to deliver same-day results. This allowed the hospital to bypass the state's testing system, which was previously the sole provider of testing for the virus. The same week, the health system also launched drive-thru testing services for Michigan Medicine patients at West Ann Arbor Health Center, Brighton Health Center, and Canton Health Center.[214]

Similarly, Beaumont Health and Henry Ford Health System in Metro Detroit also developed in-house testing methods in an effort to increase overall testing capacity within the state.[214] On March 27, a regional drive-up testing center opened in Detroit, at the vacant State Fairgrounds site. A partnership between Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties, the city of Detroit, and three regional health systems, the center is able to test up to 400 residents a day, who are referred to the site from their doctor via scheduled appointments.[215] The state restructured reporting procedures and began incorporating private test results in official government case tallies on March 19.[216] On April 15, Hurley Medical Center in Flint opened a mobile testing clinic at Atwood Stadium, with capacity for at least 250 people per day. Testing is provided to those with orders from a doctor and is not open to the general public.[217] Similar drive-thru testing facilities have opened in Atlanta, Bad Axe, Battle Creek, Bay City, Benton Harbor, Dearborn, Grand Rapids, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Saginaw, and Traverse City.[218][219]

The state health department released case counts and death tolls daily and updated recovered cases weekly. Reviews of the outcomes of reported CoVID cases lead to the discovery of unrecorded deaths on multiple occasions. These deaths were added to the daily toll when discovered, with the result that daily reported deaths did not always indicate the current state of the epidemic. Recovery from the disease was defined simply as surviving 30 days after first symptoms, with no review of actual health or hospitalization status.[220] Starting May 29, families can get tested together in Kalamazoo.[221]

Starting April 13, new testing sites opened in Atlanta, Bad Axe, Bay City, Battle Creek, Benton Harbor, Detroit, Flint, Jackson, Kalamazoo, and Traverse City.[222]

Economic impact[edit]

Aviation[edit]

On March 13, Delta Air Lines, which has a major hub at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, said it will cancel all flights to Europe for the next 30 days, decreasing flight amounts by 40% and grounding 300 planes.[223] Delta had previously indicated it would reduce international flights by 20–25% and domestic flights by 10–15%.[224] On April 28, Delta announced it will suspend flights to and from Flint, Lansing, and Kalamazoo and several other small hub airports across the country after losing $534 million in the first quarter of 2020 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on aviation.[225]

Michigan airports will receive a combined $256 million in federal aid to help ease economic hardship from the coronavirus crisis, funded by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.[226]

On August 20, American Airlines announced it will end service to 15 small airports, including Kalamazoo, starting October 7.[227]

Grocery stores[edit]

Starting on March 15, several grocery chains that have stores in Michigan, including Kroger, Meijer, and Walmart, began reducing their business hours for cleaning and restocking in response to the pandemic.[228][229][230] Similarly, Michigan-based Meijer is projected to hire 40–50 new seasonal employees per store to help meet public demand during the outbreak.[231] On March 20, Kroger announced that starting the morning of March 23, all of its Michigan stores will be dedicating the first hour of business on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to seniors, expectant mothers, first responders, and those with compromised immune systems.[232] On March 30, Kroger announced it will hire up to 2,000 people in Michigan in response to the pandemic.[233]

Automotive manufacturing[edit]

The 2020 North American International Auto Show in Detroit was canceled on March 29, due to the use of its venue TCF Center as a FEMA facility.[234]

Michigan-based automotive manufacturers General Motors, Ford, and Fiat Chrysler announced plans to gradually shut down plants starting March 19 with all plants closed by the end of the month.[235]

On March 30, Ford announced it will convert its Rawsonville Components Plant in Ypsilanti to produce GE/Airon Corporation Model A-E ventilators. It says it will produce 50,000 ventilators in the next 100 days.[236]

Restaurants and bars[edit]

On the morning of March 16, Governor Whitmer announced a temporary order to close all bars and restaurants in the state to sit-down service, effective at 3 pm the same evening until March 30. Carry-out and delivery options were excluded from the order, although restaurants were urged to limit in-building carry-out services to five customers at a time. The order also included fitness centers, theaters, casinos, and other venues that encourage large assemblages of patrons, with several exceptions, such as office buildings.[152][237] This order is expected to have significant economic impacts on businesses, and it prompted the Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Association to call for Whitmer to submit paperwork to qualify Michigan for the U.S. Small Business Administration Economic Injury Disaster Loan program.[237] The order also expands unemployment benefits to public health workers who become ill, people who need to take time off to care for children, and others, until April 14.[238]

Domino's Pizza, which is centered in the state, anticipated hiring up to 10,000 people to help meet increased demand for food delivery services due to the pandemic,[239] while Jet's Pizza also prepared to hire "hundreds" of additional delivery drivers for the same reason.[240]

On June 8, Lansing restaurants reopened for dine-in service for the first time since mid-May.[241]

On September 21, it was announced three bars in West Michigan lost their liquor licenses temporarily after they allegedly failed to enforce coronavirus mandates.[242]

Unemployment and economic relief[edit]

On March 19, the Michigan Strategic Fund unanimously voted to approve a $20 million economic relief program meant to help struggling small businesses affected by the pandemic.[243] The Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) had processed over 1.7 million applications as of May 13, with 1.375 million people receiving benefits. The state has paid $5.62 billion in benefits since the state of emergency was declared two months prior.[244] By June 19, UIA disbursed $11.4 billion to two million people since the coronavirus pandemic reached the state.[245] On August 21, the Federal Emergency Management Administration approved UIA's application for funding that would provide an additional $300 per week payment to Michigan residents receiving unemployment benefits.[246] On October 14, the federal government approved unemployment benefits for 20 more weeks, with up to 59 weeks of benefits for some workers.[247] On October 20, Governor Whitmer signed a bill approving six more weeks of state unemployment aid.[248]

On June 25, Governor Whitmer signed an executive order which allows professional sports to resume in the state.[250] Two days before, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred unilaterally implemented a 60-game season. Players reported to training camps at their regular season home stadiums on July 1 in order to resume spring training, which included inter-squad games only, and prepare for a July 23 or 24 Opening Day (July 24 for the Tigers).[251] In an effort to slow the spread of the virus, teams only played their own division and the opposite league's corresponding geographical division, e.g. the Tigers only played the American League Central (40 games total) and National League Central (20 games total).[252] Games were played behind closed doors, with artificial crowd noise played over loudspeakers.[253]

The Tigers' August 3–6 series against the St. Louis Cardinals was postponed several times after 17 of the latter's members tested positive for COVID-19, with two of the games later cancelled outright.[254]

Since July 30, the Lions have placed eight players on the injury list after they tested positive for COVID-19.[119] One player's test, quarterback Matthew Stafford, was later revealed to be a false-positive and he was removed from the list on August 4.[261]

Critical responses[edit]

Protests[edit]

On April 15, a convoy of thousands of motorists drove from all over the state to protest the extension of Governor Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home order.[283] The protest, known now as Operation Gridlock, involved clogging the streets surrounding on near the Michigan State Capitol, including the Capitol Loop, with their vehicles, drawing national attention.[284] The protest was organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, a group with ties to the DeVos family, through Facebook.[285] The Michigan Freedom Fund supported the rally by as an event co-host, spending an estimated $250 to promote the event.[286] The Michigan Conservative Coalition is asking the governor to take a more measured approach that would allow certain parts of work and daily life to start returning to normal.[287] The organizers urged participants to practice social distancing, and not leave their vehicles during the protest. Lt. Darren Green of the Michigan State Police estimated several thousand cars were part of the demonstration, with 100 to 150 people congregating on the Capitol lawn. “They’re doing a pretty good job of maintaining social distance," Green said. "They’re being respectful and not causing any issues at all.” Neither the Michigan State Police nor the Lansing Police Department had reported any arrests.[288] Multiple services have been disrupted as a result of Operation Gridlock, such as the Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) temporarily suspending their downtown route.[289] Governor Whitmer said the protest was legal per the First Amendment's right to freedom of assembly, and understood the protesters' anger, but warned them they were endangering their health by not following social distancing guidelines and noticed some people were not wearing personal protective equipment, including children, further adding "(It's) not a political decision, it's about public health. The enemy is the virus, not one another." [290][284] President Donald Trump supported the protest on April 17 with an all-caps tweet saying "Liberate Michigan".[291]

On April 30, a second protest occurred when hundreds of protesters, many carrying firearms, gathered at the Michigan Capitol. Many protesters were able to enter the building. The demonstration was organized by conservative group Michigan United for Liberty.[292] Governor Whitmer said on April 30 that she found elements of the protest ‘disturbing.’ Also, in an appearance May 3 on CNN’s State of the Union, the governor said the Confederate flags, nooses and Nazi signs displayed were ‘outrageous’ and racist, with some depicting her as Adolf Hitler.[293] On May 14, more armed protesters from Michigan United for Liberty gathered outside the Michigan State Capitol.[294] The organization's Facebook group was deleted over death threats against Governor Whitmer and a fight broke out over a doll tied to a noose carried by a man who also had an axe at the protest.[295] The Michigan Legislature closed its scheduled session to avoid the possibility of another armed confrontation inside the chamber.

On May 20, the Michigan Conservative Coalition held "Operation Haircut" on the lawn of the Capitol Building, in which barbers gave free haircuts, in support of an Owosso barber who was forced to shut down after continuing to operate until the previous week, violating the executive order closing non-essential businesses that included barbershops and beauty salons resulting in the state suspending his license. Several of the barbers at the demonstration were issued $1,000 citations by the Michigan State Police for disorderly conduct.[296] A week later on May 27, the group from Operation Haircut delivered a letter to the Governor with a layout of safe practices to reopen.[297] The charges against the Owosso barber were eventually dismissed.[298]

A peaceful demonstration of prayers organized by the religious non-profit Transformation Michigan was performed on the Capitol lawn on May 28.[299]

A peaceful protest called "Let MI People Go" by religious group Stand Up Michigan took place on the Capitol lawn on October 8.[300]

Governor Whitmer's handling of the pandemic was one of the motives mentioned by a suspect in an elaborate kidnapping plot that had been thwarted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In October 2020, fourteen members of a right-wing militia group called the Wolverine Watchmen were subsequently charged with several federal and state crimes.[301][302]

Lawsuits[edit]

In April multiple lawsuits were filed challenging Whitmer's executive orders. The suits were filed by individuals, business owners, recreational fishermen, a conservation organization, and several county prosecutors. They alleged that her orders were overly broad, violated their constitutional rights, harmed businesses, and amounted to an unconstitutional taking of property rights.[303][304][305][306][307] Governor Whitmer's third stay-at-home order, issued April 24, overturned the restrictions on recreational boating and visits to vacation homes, effectively ending some of the lawsuits.[308]

On April 29, inmates from various Michigan prisons filed a class action lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Corrections in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, claiming the state is violating the Eighth Amendment by subjecting inmates to cruel and unusual punishment by not taking necessary pandemic precautions.[309]

On May 6, a group of churches sued Governor Whitmer, claiming "Executive Order 2020-70 continues to prohibit gatherings of two or more individuals, including at churches, thereby denying them the ability to hold worship services and otherwise carry out their ministry functions until May 28, 2020" violates their First Amendment right of freedom of religion.[310]

On May 22, a group of independently owned gyms and fitness centers sued Governor Whitmer and the state's top health official the in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan in Grand Rapids attempting to overturn the state's stay-at-home order and allow them to reopen.[311] Whitmer re-opened gyms and fitness centers on September 9.[312]

On May 29, the Department of Justice filed a statement that supports a lawsuit filed by seven Michigan businesses that challenged the restrictions imposed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.[313][314] On June 2, Governor Whitmer stated in an opinion piece that the coronavirus is a civil rights battle too and that she was surprised by the lawsuit.[315]

On November 17, the Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Association sued the Michigan Department of Health and Human Service's director to block a ban on dine-in service ordered from November 18 until December 8.[316] On November 20, a federal judge denied the request, but scheduled a hearing on the case for November 30.[317]

Emergency powers lawsuits[edit]

On May 6, Michigan House of Representatives Speaker Lee Chatfield and Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, both Republicans, sued Governor Whitmer, who is a Democrat, over her use of emergency powers during the pandemic, saying only the Michigan Legislature has the power to extend the state of emergency.[318] The Michigan Court of Claims ruled in Governor Whitmer's favor on May 21.[319] The Michigan Court of Appeals affirmed the Court of Claims' ruling on August 21, in a 2–1 decision.[320]

On October 2, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled on questions posed by District Judge Paul Lewis Maloney over whether Governor Whitmer violated the state Emergency Management Act of 1976, and whether the Emergency Powers of Governor Act of 1945 was unconstitutional. It was argued that Whitmer bypassed a requirement for a vote by the state legislature in order to extend a state of emergency beyond 28 days, by redeclaring it each time it expired. It was also argued that the Emergency Powers of Governor Act constituted an "unlawful delegation of legislative power to the executive". The court unanimously ruled against Whitmer on the former question. The court ruled 4–3 against Whitmer on the latter question.[321][322][323]

Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey warned that the decision "does not alter our collective responsibility to protect ourselves and others ", and encouraged "bipartisan action to transition from government operating in fear of the virus to government managing life in the presence of the virus."[321][322] Governor Whitmer has argued that the decision is still subject to a 21-day reconsideration period, during which the orders still stand. On October 4, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel stated that she would stop enforcing COVID-19-related executive orders.[321] On October 5, Governor Whitmer told CNN the decision "undermined my emergency rule, my emergency orders that I’ve had to enact that puts us in the same state as all other states in this nation, to save lives. We’ve saved thousands of lives."[324]

In response to the ruling, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issued various orders intended to supplant most of Whitmer's executive orders, including requiring bars to close indoor gathering spaces, restrict the size of gatherings, and require the use of face masks in "social gatherings", defined as a shared space with two or more people where people are from multiple households. Businesses and government offices are required to enforce the requirements for gatherings on their premises. It also requires mask use in all sports except swimming if social distancing is not being practiced. These orders were enacted under the state health code, which gives the director of the HHS the authority to restrict gatherings and "establish procedures" to control an epidemic.[325][326][327] The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration similarly issued its own set of emergency rules for workplaces on October 14, again supplanting Whitmer's orders.[328]

On October 12, the Court denied Whitmer's motion for a transition period, officially voiding all executive orders she had issued.[329][326][327]

On October 21, a chiropractors' office in Grand Haven sued the MDHHS, Whitmer, the Ottawa County Department of Public Health and the county's Deputy Health Administrator in the Michigan Court of Claims, arguing that it did not have the authority to mandate the wearing of face masks. The business had received warnings and a cease-and-desist order from local officials over its non-enforcement of the state mask mandate.[330]

Notes:
  1. ^ This statistic is only updated on Saturdays, with the total as of the previous day. The state defines recovery as "still alive 30 days after onset of illness."
  2. ^ Official state total. Later in the day, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) disclosed 30 more cases without information on the locations of these cases. The state's total was estimated at 110, with one source reporting as many as 116.
  3. ^ The official count was updated to 336 positive cases, which included private tests from the previous two weeks that had not been included in prior totals. However, later in the day, one case each in Isabella and Genesee counties were removed from the government tally due to errors in reporting, decreasing the total to 334.
  4. ^ 14 new deaths were reported. However, after a review found manual errors in data entry, it was determined 16 deaths were reported erroneously, meaning two fewer people than yesterday's reported number have actually died.
  5. ^ Two new deaths were reported. However, a review found three previously reported deaths were erroneously added, decreasing the total by one.
Michigan.gov information is updated daily at 3 p.m., with COVID-19 results included as of 10 a.m.
Recovery data is only updated by the state on Saturdays, with data as of the previous day, starting on April 4.
The state discontinued reporting results on Sundays starting September 6. Data on Mondays will include that of Sundays starting September 7.[567]
