Michigan's Stay Home, Stay Safe Order

What It Means

To combat the spread of Coronavirus in Michigan, Governor Whitmer signed the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order on March 23, 2020. For at least the next three weeks until April 13, all Michigan businesses must temporarily suspend in-person operations that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. The Executive Order also directs that all Michiganders must stay in their homes unless they are part of a critical workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family (like going to the pharmacy or to the grocery store).

What You Can Do Under the Stay Safe Order

  • Go to the grocery store or pick up take-out food.
  • Go to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription.
  • Engage in outdoor activities like walking, hiking or biking.
  • Walk your pets and take them to the veterinarian for needed medical care.
  • Go to the hospital or secure any care necessary to address a medical emergency or to preserve your health or the health of a family member.
  • Fill your car with gas.
  • Return to Michigan to a home or place of residence from outside the State. Leave the State for a home or residence elsewhere.
