Michigan Funeral Directors

News to Note

Governor Limits Funeral Services to No More than Ten People This afternoon, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued a new Executive Order (E.O. 2020-42) extending her earlier "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order to April 30th. Unlike her previous order, however, the Governor specifically listed attending a funeral as an essential activity for which individuals may leave their home or place of residence, "provided that no more than 10 people are in attendance at the funeral." This Order has the force of law and is punishable as a misdemeanor. This clarification comes on the heels of MFDA's recommendation of last week that members limit funeral, memorial, visitation and graveside services to no more than 10 people. The Order also included new restrictions placed on stores, depending on its size. MFDA will continue to keep you apprised of developments.
