These COVID-19 Restrictions Are Still In Place Here In Michigan
Just because most of our COVID-19 restrictions were lifted on Tuesday, that doesn't necessarily mean that they are all gone.
The mask mandate for those who were unvaccinated, as well as the indoor capacity limit, ended on Tuesday, according to MLive.
The orders were originally supposed to end on July 1st, but with low COVID-19 numbers, the timeline was accelerated. The list of orders that expired are; Temporary Restrictions for Entry into Congregate Care and Juvenile Justice, Gatherings and Face Masks Order, Mandatory Testing for MDHHS Hospitals and Centers Staff, Mandatory Testing for MDHHS Juvenile Justice Facility Staff, Exceptions to Temporary Restrictions on Entry into Certain Facilities, Exceptions to Temporary Restrictions on Entry into Congregate Care and Juvenile Justice Facilities, Handling of Bodily Remains, Safe Housing for Michigan Homeless.
