A group of churches who filed suit Wednesday against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive orders plan to hold off on serving the complaint after the Governor issued a new executive order the following day that exempted churches, synagogues, mosques and places of religious worship as well the individuals participating in services.
“Churches are essential to the health and well-being of everyone,” Attorney David Kallman said in a statement. “The governor now appears to recognize this fact and will not attempt to prohibit people of all religious faiths to meet and freely exercise their religious beliefs. Places of worship can operate responsibly and safely using CDC guidelines and protocols.”
