New Revisions To Gov. Whitmer’s Executive Order, First Steps To Responsibly Restarting Economy

April 24, 2020

Statement from Sandy K. Baruah, president and CEO of the Detroit Regional Chamber.

“The revisions to the “Stay at Home” order brought forth by Gov. Whitmer today began the process of responsibly restarting Michigan’s economy. COVID-19 has created a dual-threat to Michigan – a public health crisis coupled with an economic crisis – and the original “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order has initially flattened the curve and positions Michigan to reactivate its economy. This is good news for some of the hundreds of thousands of Michiganders struggling economically. The Chamber will work diligently with Gov. Whitmer and the Legislature to execute a smart and successful re-opening as we all adapt to the new normal.”
