Governor Whitmer made it official Thursday: Michigan will reopen to full capacity sooner than planned.
The state will reopen on June 22, as COVID-19 numbers continue to plummet following increased vaccinations. It’s the end of all COVID epidemic orders on gatherings and masking, indoor and outdoor. Capacities return to 100%, and the state will no longer require face masks to be worn by residents.
Roughly 5 million Michiganders have received their first dose of the vaccine, according to the CDC. Half of the state’s residents are now fully vaccinated.
