The Oakland County Health Department is cracking down on the Pontiac-based mortgage company United Shore after 53 employees tested positive for the coronavirus since June 29, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The agency issued an emergency order Wednesday after numerous complaints that the company isn't complying with the governor's orders, including that all employees wear masks indoors.

A press release outlines the emergency order:

  • Develop and implement a plan to manage and control social/physical distancing (at least six-foot spacing).

  • Ensure employees wear facial coverings.

  • Develop and implement a daily screening process and stay home when sick policy.

  • Encourage working from home, when possible.

Disobeying a county order is a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum six months in jail and $200 daily fine. 

A company spokesperson tells the Freep that United Shore believes it's in full compliance.
