Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a new executive order today allowing some types of work to resume on Thursday. It includes construction, real estate and work that is traditionally and primarily performed outdoors,
Manufacturing for the express purpose of producing items that will help businesses modify workspaces to keep employees safe, like partitions or cubicle, will also resume, Whitmer said.
According to the governor, her order requires those businesses to adopt measures to protect their workers against the spread of Covid-19. Under the order, construction sites have to adopt a set of best practices, including things like daily health screenings and identifying high-risk areas.
Whitmer’s "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order remains in effect until May 15.
