Whitmer Creates Business Reopening Panel 56 Days After Her Lockdown

Why the wait?

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced this week the state is creating “the first round of workgroups to find out how childcare centers, hair salons, home service providers, outdoor recreation and restaurants could safely reopen.” That is being reported by MIRS News.

Whitmer’s executive order closed those non-essential businesses on March 16.

This means it has been 56 days since non-essential businesses were closed and the state started workgroups on figuring out how they could best reopen.
