EAST LANSING, Mich. — At yesterday’s East Lansing City Council meeting, Council unanimously approved the adoption of Ordinance No. 1497 - an emergency ordinance requiring compliance with public health orders.
Under the ordinance, any person who violates a public health order issued by the State of Michigan, the Ingham County Health Department or the Mid-Michigan District Health Department (including health officers and directors) could receive a municipal civil infraction, punishable by a fine of $500. The emergency ordinance goes into effect today, Jan. 29 and will remain in effect until it is amended or repealed through an ordinance adopted by the City Council. A similar, previous ordinance expired at the end of 2020.
Public health orders can be viewed at the following websites: www.michigan.gov/coronavirus, http://hd.ingham.org/ and https://www.mmdhd.org/covid-center/. It’s important to note that, as future public health orders are put into place, they can be enforced under the City’s emergency ordinance.
Monday - Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
