At the Fenton City Council work session Monday, Oct. 5, the Council reaffirmed its support of the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS) emergency order effective Monday, Oct. 5. The Order requires that individuals must wear masks at indoor and outdoor gatherings and limits the size of gatherings to mirror previous requirements (Executive Orders) of Governor Whitmer.
Any violation of the MDHHS order is a misdemeanor punishable by six months in jail or a $200 fine.
The Fenton City Council concurred that wearing masks, practicing safe social distancing and washing hands are essential in keeping our schools and our small businesses open and our front-line workers safe.
The MDHHS emergency order remains in effect through Oct. 30.
