Michigan is approaching its first vaccination goal, which will allow in-person work statewide.
However, Michigan is a comparative outlier to many other Democratic-run states since it hasn’t yet set a reopening date.
About 54% of Michiganders have received a first injection. Once reached, plus two weeks to reach complete immunity, the state says it will relax an office ban on much in-person work.
When the state hits 60% plus two weeks, the following restrictions will be relaxed:
- Increased indoor sports stadium capacity indoor to 25%;
- Increased indoor capacity at conference centers/banquet halls/funeral homes to 25% (up from a 25-person capacity);
- Increased capacity at exercise facilities and gyms to 50%, up from 30%;
- 11 p.m. curfew on restaurants and bars
If the state reaches 65% of Michiganders (5.2 million), plus two weeks, the state says it will lift all indoor capacity limits. Social distancing will still be required between parties. Residential social gatherings will also be relaxed.
