Due to the increased strain on Michigan’s food service industry, Governor Whitmer has extended the deadline for certain forms of licensing and registration. Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-60 on April 26 under which Food Service Establishment licenses will be due 60 days after the day food service facilities are allowed to fully reopen to the public as stated in language below.

Temporary safety measures for food-selling establishments and pharmacies and temporary relief from requirements applicable to the renewal of licenses for the food service industry:

Strict compliance with sections 3119, 4109, 4113, and 4115 of the Food Law, 92 PA 2000, as amended, MCL 289.3119, MCL 289.4109, MCL 289.4113, and MCL 289.4115, is temporarily suspended to the extent necessary to extend the deadline for local health departments to submit fees under section 3119, and to extend the license and registration expiration dates under sections 4109 and 4115, until 60 days after the end of the declared states of emergency and disaster. Furthermore, late fees shall not be assessed under sections 4113 or 4115 during the 2020–2021 license year.

For clarification: Food Service Establishment licenses will be due 60 days after the day food service facilities are allowed fully to reopen to the public.
