Gov. Gretchen WHITMER today announced Michigan is lifting mask requirements for vaccinated people in all settings, following the updated federal guidance issued Thursday.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday that “fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance,” the Governor said in a press release.
The updated gatherings and mask order will go into effect Saturday at 9 a.m.
Under the updated order, Michiganders who are outdoors will no longer need to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. While indoors, fully vaccinated Michiganders will no longer need to wear a mask, but residents who are not vaccinated, or have not completed their vaccinations, must continue to wear a mask or face covering to protect themselves and others.
After July 1, the broad indoor mask mandate will expire, according to the press release.
