Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is moving forward with new health mandates despite a state Supreme Court ruling last week that struck down her extended emergency powers.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) issued new orders on Monday to keep in place mask requirements, limits on public gatherings, and other health codes put in place by the governor’s administration during the coronavirus pandemic. The fresh mandates come days after the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that Whitmer lacked the authority to continue to enforce emergency health codes for the pandemic.
