Extension of the Gatherings and Face Mask Order

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has updated the Gatherings and Face Mask Order (New Order). The prior Gatherings and Face Mask Order (Prior Order) has been extended to December 20, 2020. 

The New Order is consistent with the Prior Order, but includes additional definitions. In particular, the New Order defines “indoors.”

“Indoors” means within a space that is fully or partially enclosed on the top, and fully or partially enclosed on two or more contiguous sides. Additionally, in a space that is fully or partially enclosed on the top, and fully or partially enclosed on two non-contiguous sides, any part of that space that is more than 8 feet from an open side is indoors.

The limitations on gatherings in indoor spaces now applies to all locations that meet this definition of indoors. Outdoors is defined as all spaces that are not indoors.
