Governor Whitmer announced that retailers and auto dealerships can open by appointment beginning Tuesday, May 26.

  • Currently, golf shops can be open for curbside retail. Beginning May 26, retail shops can open for appointment with maximum capacity of 10 people or less as stated in 2020-96, Section 11(q). While the order does not define “by appointment”, it also does not prohibit a “walk up” appointment. All places of public accommodation under 2020-69 are still closed. Golf shops choosing to open for retail sales should review 2020-97, Section 6.
  • Effective immediately, social gatherings of no more than 10 people are allowed with social distancing guidelines in place according to 2020-96, Section 8. The revised order does not reopen restaurants and bars in Regions 1-5 and 7. See Executive Order 2020-69.
  • A notable change was added to 2020-97, Section 1 (l) from previous order 2020-91 regarding procedures for employees to return to work following a positive test of COVID-19.
  • Workers necessary to prepare a workplace to follow the workplace standards described in Executive Order 2020-96, Section 11o and to otherwise ready the workplace for reopening are allowed.

The Michigan Golf Alliance continues to lobby for Regions 1-5, and 7 to allow alcohol to be sold for on course consumption.
