Short-term rentals not allowed during stay-home order.
Governor Whitmer issued Executive order No. 2020-77 on May 7, 2020. Item number 13 of this Executive Order states, "No one shall rent a short-term vacation property except as necessary to assist in housing a health care professional aiding in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic or a volunteer who is aiding the same."
