No more than 15 people may gather outdoors in parts of East Lansing, including the downtown area, per an emergency order issued today by Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail. The order (Ingham2021-1), which goes into effect March 5, replaces a previous emergency order issued in October. That order limited outdoor gathering sizes in the area to ten people.The change reflects the easing of restrictions statewide including the Gatherings and Face Mask Order. The emergency order remains in place indefinitely to limit the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The restricted area stretches from the northern edge of the Michigan State University campus to Burcham Drive and is bounded by Harrison Road to the west and Hagadorn Road to the east, including properties adjacent to those streets.
