Michigan health department issues order requiring masks, limiting gathering sizes statewide

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday issued an emergency public health order requiring masks and limiting gatherings after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s authority to issue orders was struck down by the Supreme Court on Friday.

The governor’s executive orders were thrown into legal limbo last week when the Michigan Supreme Court ruled the laws underpinning her executive orders were unconstitutional. The governor is seeking clarification from the court on whether the order takes effect immediately, arguing it instead starts Oct. 30 under a court rule.

The requirements put in place by MDHHS closely track with the executive orders the governor had put in place, MDHHS Director Robert Gordon said Tuesday.

“At no point today have we said we as the health department aim to do more than the governor already did... we aim to preserve the status quo pending further review,” Gordon said in a call with reporters.
