LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has received many complaints regarding suspected violators of Governor Whitmer’s "Stay Home, Stay Safe" Executive Order.
Meridian Township Police Lieutenant Rick Grillo tells HOMTV, "If we receive a complaint about violating the order and it rises to criminal activity, it will be sent to the prosecutor's office for further investigation and eventual prosecution."
Citizens found in violation could be penalized by a $500 fine or up to 90 days in jail. If you have a nonessential business and you violate the order, you will lose your license and you may never open for business again.
The Michigan State Police website says officers will not be randomly pulling people over. Freeways will remain open because they are considered essential for health and safety. If you have to go out in public, make sure you follow the social distancing guideline.Stay at least six feet away from other people, and wear a mask or bandanna if you are sick.
