Tuesday, May 25, 2021
GRAND RAPIDS – Michigan's path to recovery from COVID-19 is moving forward.
During a visit to Grand Rapids on Monday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer shared that some changes will be coming to the State's epidemic orders over the next few weeks. As of June 1, all outdoor capacity limits and curfews on bars and restaurants will be lifted. Indoor capacities will be increased to 50 percent for all indoor spaces, which includes stadiums, funeral homes and other businesses. Vaccinated people will no longer need to wear a mask in public whether you're indoors or outdoors.
Unvaccinated Michiganders will continue to wear masks. In addition, if a business requires masking, Whitmer says we need to support them and abide by that. As of July 1, Whitmer says the indoor capacity limits and broad gathering and mask ordinances will be lifted.
To date, 57 percent of Michigan residents have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
