On March 2, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) updated two epidemic orders, allowing for increased capacity limits at various venues, larger residential and nonresidential gatherings, and expanded visitation at residential care facilities. Changes are designed to balance reopening while controlling the spread of COVID-19 and saving Michiganders’ lives. Although we are seeing progress in reduction of hospitalizations, it is crucial that Michiganders continue to mask up and socially distance as we reopen.

Updated MDHHS Orders Issued
Update December 18
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) updated its epidemic order today to allow indoor activities where Michiganders can remain masked, as this has been scientifically shown to slow the virus. This includes in-person learning at high schools and indoor entertainment venues. Casinos, bowling centers and movie theatres will be allowed to reopen with total capacity capped at 100; food and drink concessions closed; and social distancing requirements in place. The new order is effective Monday, Dec. 21 and will last until Friday, Jan. 15. Learn more
