It seems as though Ohio is allowing lawn care operations. Indiana and Michigan?

This is what we are going on.... seen and heard multiple lawn companies out today doing apps and clean ups View attachment 398018View attachment 398019

"Workers such as plumbers, electricians, exterminators, and other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences"


While wishing this was the case, I would not base such a critical decision as to whether or not you are going to seemingly defy the Governor's Executive Order on this piece-meal extraction from a much larger and more exhaustive document. Here is more from the quoted material from the Federal Government, not the closest jurisdiction body which in this case would be the State of Michigan.

We recognize that State, local, tribal, and territorial governments are ultimately in charge of implementing and executing response activities in communities under their jurisdiction, while the Federal Government is in a supporting role. As State and local communities consider COVID-19-related restrictions, CISA is offering this list to assist prioritizing activities related to continuity of operations and incident response, including the appropriate movement of critical infrastructure workers within and between jurisdictions.
Accordingly, this list is advisory in nature. It is not, nor should it be considered to be, a federal directive or standard in and of itself.
In addition, these identified sectors and workers are not intended to be the authoritative or exhaustive list of critical infrastructure sectors and functions that should continue during the COVID-19 response. Instead, State and local officials should use their own judgment in using their authorities and issuing implementation directives and guidance. Similarly, critical infrastructure industry partners will use their own judgment, informed by this list, to ensure continued operations of critical infrastructure services and functions. All decisions should appropriately balance public safety while ensuring the continued delivery of critical infrastructure services and functions.

I'll be waiting further clarity on this, it is much too gray for my liking.

Governor of Michigan says today that Landscaping and Construction are not "essential".. I get that. I however do not get that Liquor Sales, Beer Sales, Lottery Sales, Cigarette sales, and fast food are. How is that even logical?? Also, says to social distance 6 feet apart while sitting less than 3 feet away from Doctor on live television. Trump does the same thing every single day. If it's that bad, wouldn't they be protected and isolated? Our freedom is in serious jeopardy....

Don't get me wrong. I smoke, I have a few beers once in awhile, I buy fast food, and I purchase lottery tickets. These are not life saving essentials. These all can end lives early, Is it Pure Michigan or Pure Hypocrisy?

I believe the argument goes that those 7-11 types stores are sometimes the closest stores for people to buy essential items (aspirin, milk, a food product, etc.) instead of having to drive to the grocery stores if they have no transportation.
