Whitmer clarifies mask order, optional at polling places

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer encourages Michiganders to mask up on July 15 to prevent the state’s return to phase three.

(The Center Square) – Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-153 Friday, clarifying the order enacted Monday that required all Michiganders to wear a mask in indoor public spaces and crowded outdoor spaces.

The order makes three changes, effective immediately.

Businesses can’t assume unmasked customers can’t medically tolerate a face covering, one of the exemptions, but can accept a customer’s verbal confirmation for that question.

The order doesn’t require people to wear a mask at a voting station for voting purposes but encourages it.

Also, public safety officers must wear a mask unless it would “seriously interfere in the performance of their responsibilities.”
