FISHING AND BOATING
GOVERNOR’S EXECUTIVE ORDER
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has taken numerous actions to keep Michigan residents safe and healthy during the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We have announced a series of facility and event closures, cancellations and modifications. Many public meetings have been postponed or moved to a webinar or conference call format.
Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order states that individuals may leave their home or place of residence, and travel as necessary, to engage in outdoor activity, including walking, hiking, running, cycling, or any other recreational activity consistent with remaining at least 6 feet from people outside an individual’s household. Visitors should not travel long distances, unless it is for a purpose considered critical. Nonessential travel could unintentionally increase the spread of COVID-19.
