Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order today that extends existing safety measures to protect consumers and employees at grocery stores and pharmacies.
The order requires grocery stores and pharmacies to continue following the established guidelines until May 29, according to a news release.
Some of these guidelines include:
- Customers must wear a face covering when entering a grocery store or pharmacy
- Grocery stores and pharmacies must allocate at least two hours per week for vulnerable populations to shop safely
- If an employee tests positive for coronavirus, the business must notify other employees
“We must continue protecting the health and safety of both consumers and employees at our grocery stores and pharmacies, which we rely on more than ever during this unprecedented public health crisis,” Whitmer said.
Food sellers must also continue to follow safety guidelines, including maintaining social distancing and implementing a daily screening process for employees.
