A Statement from the Real Property Law Section Regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic

On March 23, 2020, Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-21 (COVID-19). It is described as the temporary requirement to suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. A link to that guideline is provided here.

On August 7, 2020, the Governor extended the state of emergency through September 4, 2020, by Executive Order 2020-165.

The Real Property Law Section continues to operate but all meetings in the near future will be conducted remotely with call-in functionality. Time will provide more guidance as this experience is negotiated, but in the meantime, be safe and guard your health zealously.
