Michigan COVID-19 Update: Permission to Practice

On June 5, 2020, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued Executive Order (EO) 2020-114 (https://content.govdelivery.com/attachments/MIEOG/2020/06/05/file_attach...), allowing massage therapists, estheticians, hair salons, barbershops, and nail professionals to resume business operations. Zones 6 and 8 (Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula) will reopen June 10, 2020. The remainder of the state will reopen June 15, 2020. 

Michigan COVID-19 State Update

There have been many changes in the massage therapy and cosmetology industries and communities in response to COVID-19 (coronavirus). In Michigan, perhaps the most impact was felt across businesses mandated to close. ABMP, ASCP, AHP, and ANP have summarized below Executive Orders regarding COVID-19 in the state of Michigan, and we encourage you to pay special attention to the CARES Act outlined at the bottom of this email, which addresses financial aid and unemployment benefits.
