MDHHS Epidemic Order

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has issued this order
under a law first enacted by the Michigan Legislature after the Spanish Flu of 1918,
specifically to deal with epidemics. This gives the MDHHS director broad authority
to take actions by emergency order to protect the public health during an epidemic.
To reduce confusion following the recent Michigan Supreme Court decision, MDHHS
issued orders following existing executive orders as much as possible under the
different law to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19. Source:
