THE COUNTY OF SHIAWASSEE: Temporary requirement to suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life

Local Government

By Press release submission | Mar 24, 2020


The County of Shiawassee issued the following announcement on March 24.

We broke down Executive Order 2020-21 to help identify what county residents can and cannot do during the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order. We have also included a list of Essential Services outlined in the order.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory disease that can result in serious illness or death. It is caused by a new strain of coronavirus not previously identified in humans and easily spread from person to person. Older adults and those with chronic health conditions are at particular risk, and there is an increased risk of rapid spread of COVID-19 among persons in close proximity to one another. There is currently no approved vaccine or antiviral treatment for this disease. On March 10, 2020, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services identified the first two presumptive-positive cases of COVID-19 in Michigan. On that same day, I issued Executive Order 2020-4. This order declared a state of emergency across the state of Michigan under section 1 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963, the Emergency Management Act, 1976 PA 390, as amended, MCL 30.401-.421, and the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945, 1945 PA 302, as amended, MCL 10.31-.33.
