“With millions of Michiganders fully vaccinated, we can now safely and confidently take the next step to get back to normal,” Whitmer said in a press release Friday. “The message is clear: vaccines work to protect you and your loved ones. If you have not yet received your vaccine, now is the time to sign up. This pandemic has been one of the toughest challenges of our lifetimes, but we came together as a state to persevere. We have all been working incredibly hard toward getting back to some sense of normalcy, and today's news makes all of that work worthwhile.”
Per the CDC's update, masks are still required for everyone regardless of vaccination status while traveling on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation, and it recommends that fully vaccinated people continue mask-wearing while in nursing homes, prisons, and homeless shelters.
