The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has issued a new emergency order enacing a three-week pause targeting indoor social gatherings and other group activities beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 18. With the order, indoor residential gatherings are limited to two households at any one time.
The new restrictions, announced by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, limit bars and restaurants to outdoor dining, carry-out and delivery only.
It also orders high schools and colleges to end in-person classes and switch to remote learning. Professional and college sports may continue without spectators, however all other organized sports must stop. Gyms can remain open for individual workouts, but group exercise classes must end.
