Public Meetings

All broad state COVID-19 restrictions from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services “Gatherings and Face Masks” epidemic order were lifted June 22 following plummeting case positivity rates, hospitalizations and deaths, and increasing statewide vaccination rates. This means that there are no longer any indoor or outdoor gathering restrictions, or face covering requirements.


Pursuant to the Open Meetings Act, Public Act 267 of 1976, Section 15.263a remote participation in public meetings is allowed through December 2021 for three reasons: military duty, a medical condition, or a statewide or local state of emergency or state of disaster. On April 8, 2021 the Saginaw County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution continuing the declaration of a Local State of Emergency until August 31, 2021.
