What Governor’s Executive Order Means for MTU

by University Marketing and Communications

On Wednesday (July 29), Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued Executive Order 160. Here’s what the executive order, specifically the 10-person limit, means to Michigan Tech.

The Executive Order limits indoor “social gatherings and organized events” to a maximum of 10 people.  While we are not given specific definitions of these terms, the Michigan Association of State Universities has obtained clarification from the Governor’s Office that the limit is not applicable to educational or workplace environments.
