Governor Clarifies That Businesses May Not Assume Unmasked Patrons Are Medically Unable To Wear One
Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued a revised mask-wearing order, (E.O. 2020-153) clarifying that a business may not assume that an unmasked customer is medically unable to tolerate a mask, but may accept a verbal representation that they are medically unable. Practically, this means that funeral home personnel must ask those unmasked individuals seeking to attend funeral and visitation services to wear a mask, and if the individual responds that they are physically unable to do so, the funeral home may rely upon that representation. The remaining provisions of the order that apply to funeral homes are the same, and are summarized in the link below.
