State Representative Andrea Schroeder approved of the newly updated guidelines for reopening the state safely and responsibly. Schroeder commented that the new metrics, following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, will help allow Michiganders to return to a sense of pre-pandemic normalcy.
“I am happy to hear our state will be moving forward with updated metrics following new CDC guidance,” Rep. Schroeder said. “Our communities, like many others across the state, have suffered throughout the past year as small businesses were forced to shutter and school-age children were denied in-person learning opportunities, and people struggled to obtain unemployment benefits. We have all sacrificed so much on our journey to the other side of this crisis, and I look forward to watching my community flourish once again as we welcome a return normalcy.”
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced yesterday an update to her “Vacc to Normal” reopening plan. The updated guidelines allow fully vaccinated people to no longer wear masks outdoors or indoors unless required by their work or business. Beginning June 1, all outdoor capacity restrictions will be lifted. By July 1, Michigan will lift broad mask and gathering orders.
