Boating Banned

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources said its officers gave out five tickets and several hundred warnings to boaters  over the weekend. 

Michigan Department of Natural Resources conservation officers issued five citations over the weekend to boaters in violation of the governor’s stay-home order, but none of them involved the use of a motorized boat, according to the department.

DNR officers gave 323 verbal warnings to boaters for violations of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's executive order, ranging from social distancing, operating a motorized boat or boating with people from outside an individual’s household, said department spokesman Ed Golder.
