Line 1: Line 1:
All Hands Active will follow the MI Safe Start plan as released by Governor Whitmer. Currently, Michigan is at Phase 3: Flattening, and manufacturing facilities are permitted to reopen, but offices are not. In Phase 4: Improving, both general retail and offices are permitted to reopen (with safety precautions). I believe that members of AHA want to be safe themselves, and want to protect the community, so we may want to consider ourselves an office as a cautious choice. That said, the shop and electronics lab could reasonably be considered manufacturing areas, and could perhaps be reopened immediately.
AHA's COVID-19 policy is based on the CDCs [https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/covid-by-county.html community transmission map].


To comply with the state guidelines, the following will be implemented by the newly created Health Safety Officer:
