Outdoor events limited to 25 people in East Lansing under new emergency order
EAST LANSING, Mich. Ingham County Health Officer Linda S. Vail signed an emergency order on Tuesday that restricts outdoor gatherings to no more than 25 people in the city of East Lansing amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Vails new emergency order is specific to East Lansing -- which is home to thousands of college students who attend Michigan State University (MSU). The emergency order also includes properties adjacent to those streets. East Lansing residents must still comply with the states 10-person capacity limit for indoor gatherings. Those who defy East Lansings new emergency order may face a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in prison and/or a $200 fine, officials said.
