Michigan’s governor says easing the state’s COVID restrictions will be tied to the vaccination rate.
Governor Whitmer and state health officials gave an update on Thursday. She and her 19 year-old daughter also received their second COVID shots.
Whitmer announced a plan to establish the easing of restrictions in the state based on its vaccination rate.
It’s part of the state’s “Mi Vacc To Normal” plan that seeks to vaccinate 70% of the state’s 16 and older population. There are tiers for 55% and 60% that relate directly to capacities, face masks, and curfews around the state.
As of Thursday Michigan has 48.8% of its 16 and older population vaccinated against COVID-19.
