LANSING (CCN) — Michigan business owners won't need to comply with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmner's Executive Order to supply appropriate face coverings for employees when opening on Monday morning.
Although the latest Executive Order from Governor Whitmer requires employers to provide them to all of their onsite employees starting at midnight Sunday, appropriate face coverings remain in high demand and short supply. When Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel was alerted to the problem earlier Sunday, she issued a reprieve to worried business owners.
Her office released the following statement via a press release: “I know many business owners around the state are working hard to reopen and comply with the Governor’s Executive Order. Securing appropriate face coverings by the Monday deadline, though, appears to be a difficult task for some businesses given limited supplies. Therefore, I am asking our law enforcement partners around the state to consider the good faith efforts of businesses that have tried, but have been unsuccessful, in obtaining appropriate face coverings when deciding whether to take criminal enforcement action against a non-compliant business. While businesses work diligently to find appropriate face coverings to meet the requirements of the Executive Order, I urge employees that can safely do so to use their own face coverings as protection until businesses provide face coverings as required by the Governor’s order. The Governor’s order requires that each of us — businesses and employees — work together to safely and successfully reopen our economy. We appreciate the cooperation of law enforcement, employers and employees as we strive to carefully and thoughtfully reopen our state, one step at a time.”
(CCN) — A story published Sunday by the Associated Press suggests that billions of dollars in coronavirus relief for America's small businesses may not prevent many of them from going out of business. The AP story reported that Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations were up significantly in March when "stay-at-home" orders across the country began because of the coronavirus pandemic that has so far killed more than 55,000 people in the United States where officials say the pandemic is closing in on reaching one million total cases in America.
(CCN) — Michigan businesses can refuse service to any customers without their mouth and nose covered, beginning on Monday (April 27, 2020) The new requirement to wear a mask in enclosed, public spaces was part of the revised "stay-at-home" order imposed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer during her Friday afternoon press conference. She said people are to cover their nose and mouth with homemade or non-medical grade face coverings when entering stores, pharmacies or other public buildings. This idea was previously a recommendation by the state.
(CCN) — The lastest round of relief package funds for U.S. businesses will dry up quickly, according to numerous financial institutions. All the major media outlets are reporting that thousands of applications are already queued up by lenders because of the coronavirus pandemic. President Donald Trump signed into law a $484 billion coronavirus relief package on Friday, including the first bill passed by Congress that included $349 billion that was gone within two weeks after it became available in early April.
