– Michigan is lifting all of its COVID restrictions for capacity, masks and gatherings next week, Gov.
Michigan was originally supposed to fully reopen July 1, but with more than 9 million vaccines administered and COVID cases plummeting, that timeline has been accelerated.
MDHHS will continue to provide recommendations to keep Michiganders safe and reduce the risk of spreading the virus in higher-risk settings and places where vulnerable populations or populations with large numbers of individuals are not yet fully vaccinated, state officials said.
“We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the medical experts and health professionals who stood on the front lines to keep us all safe, and we are incredibly thankful to all of the essential workers who kept our state moving,” Whitmer said
Nearly five million Michiganders ages 16 and older have received at least one dose of the COVID vaccine, according to CDC data
