Gathering and Face Mask Order Lifted, But MIOSHA Workplace Rules Remain In Place

June 18, 2021

On June 17, 2021, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services issued a Recission of Emergency Orders. Finding that the COVID-19 positivity rates, case rates, hospitalization and death numbers have decreased, along with the availability of vaccines reducing the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S., the MDHHS rescinds many of its emergency orders, including the Gatherings and Face Mask Order, effective June 22, 2021.

While there are no longer any state-wide restrictions and requirements as to gatherings and face coverings, Michigan employers are still required to comply with MIOSHA Emergency Rules to control, prevent, and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. Unless MIOSHA rescinds these rules earlier, they are set to remain in effect until October 14, 2021.

If you have any questions about the recission of MDHHS epidemic orders or MIOSHA emergency rules, please contact the authors of this alert or your Miller Canfield attorney.
