Fenton, MI — April 13, 2020
Finally, some good news to report on. With the COVID-19 pandemic beginning to peak, it’s time to think about restarting our economy. How do we go about doing that? Most experts indicate it will happen in stages. We can see that already in Michigan.
With the recent extension of the Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order until May 1st, some provisions were included that indicate how a restart may occur. Given that Michigan is the automotive capital of the country, the order included a section that addresses the critical need of transportation providers. The following is an extract from EXECUTIVE ORDER No. 2020-42
9. For purposes of this order, critical infrastructure workers also include:
(i) Workers at motor vehicle dealerships who are necessary to facilitate remote
and electronic sales or leases, or to deliver motor vehicles to customers,
provided that showrooms remain closed to in-person traffic.
It makes sense remote transactions will be one of the first business activities to reboot American commerce. Nothing is more essential to our economy than modes of transportation to facilitate it.
