NOW: Michigan to open to full capacity June 22

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced Thursday that the state will open to full capacity and will no longer require residents to wear a face mask beginning June 22.

All indoor and outdoor capacity settings can increase to 100% on this day.

“Today is a day that we have all been looking forward to, as we can safely get back to normal day-to-day activities and put this pandemic behind us,” said Governor Whitmer. “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.”

The announcement comes as case rates, percent positivity, and hospitalizations have significantly declined over the past several weeks.
