UPDATED 6/8/2020

On Monday, June 1, 2020 the Governor issued Executive Order 2020-110 moving the State of Michigan to Stage 4 of the Michigan Safe Start Plan.  As a result, Michigan residents are no longer required to stay home.  Under EO 2020-110 offices may also resume operations.  

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19/coronavirus and to protect the overall public health of our citizens, visitors and employees, and following with the guidance in EO 2020-110 BCPRC employees will return to their offices in a phased approach beginning Monday, June 8, 2020.   

BCPRC buildings will remain closed to the public the week of June 8th – 12th.  BCPRC services will be available by telephone or remotely.  Beginning on June 15th and going through June 26th, in addition to telephone and remote services, in person services will be available by appointment only.  It is anticipated that we will resume normal operations beginning Monday June 29th, subject to any further guidance or restrictions provided through Executive Order or Public Health Order. Historic buildings will remain closed after June 29, 2020, except for the Upjohn House and Museum. All Shelters will be available for rental effective Saturday, June 13, 2020, provided gathering numbers are limited to 100 or fewer, all social distancing guidelines are followed, and facemasks are worn where appropriate.
