Please note that many of the executive orders have been rescinded and some have been replaced with new executive orders.
Although many people have questions regarding the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order signed by Governor Whitmer, Berrien County residents are requested to not call the Berrien County Public Safety Dispatch Center with their questions or concerns regarding possible violations.
The Berrien County Sheriff’s Office is working closely with the Health Department to attempt to handle these calls through the Berrien County COVID-19 Response Hotline (800) 815-5485.
The county needs to keep their dispatchers available to answer emergency 9-1-1 calls and other calls for service where a police, fire or EMS response is needed.
Sheriff Paul Bailey is asking residents to review the Executive Order before making a formal complaint, since many exceptions apply.
