Coronavirus: Info and Updates

Michigan's Construction Industry Adapts to COVID-19 Policies

Updated March 22, 2021

The Michigan Occupational Health and Safety Administration (MIOSHA) is operating under Emergency Orders, which are set to expire April 14, 2021. We do expect an extension to that order.  Under the order, employers are required to prohibit in-person work for any job where it is feasible to work from home.  Feasibility takes into account economics and technology.  If employees are required to report to an office, employers must create a safe work environment.  In 4-6 weeks, we expect MIOSHA to issue permanent rules for operating in the future.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has issued a new Epidemic Order for Gatherings which is in effect from March 22 – April 19, 2021:

  • Non-residential gatherings are limited to 25 people indoors or up to 300 people outdoors.  Everyone must wear a facemask at all times, unless eating or drinking while seated in a designated area. Seated groups must not exceed 6 people.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has released a Toolkit to assist employers of essential workers with educating their employees about COVID-19 vaccines, raise awareness about the benefits of vaccination, and address common questions and concerns.  Click here for the Toolkit.

Michigan will see a big expansion of COVID-19 vaccine eligibility on Monday, March 22nd:

  • Starting Monday (March 22) all areas of the state may, as vaccine supplies are available, implement vaccination of people who are aged 50 and up (part of Phase 2), as well as vaccination of people aged 16 and up who have disabilities and/or medical conditions, as well as their caregiver family members and guardians.
  • By April 5, 2021, all areas of the state may, as vaccine supplies are available, implement vaccination of all people aged 16 and up who were not previously eligible.

Resources for Employers

On April 23, Congress approved additional funding for the federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which offers forgivable small business loans to cover up to eight weeks of payroll and other costs such as rent and utilities. The loans are primarily available to companies with up to 500 employees. We strongly encourage you to apply now with your lending institution as applications are likely to be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
