APRIL 29, 2021 - Governor Gretchen Whitmer today set the state of Michigan on a pathway to return to normal by unveiling the 'MI Vacc to Normal' plan as the state continues to push toward its goal of vaccinating 70% of Michiganders ages 16 years or older. To facilitate this goal, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) will base future epidemic order actions on four vaccination-based milestones that, once achieved, will enable Michigan to take a step toward normalcy.

The 'MI Vacc to Normal' plan will use four vaccination-based milestones -- using data for Michiganders 16 years or older who've received their first dose -- to guide future steps required to get back to normal:

Phases are as follows:

  • 55% of Michiganders (4,453,304 residents), plus two weeks: 

    • Allows in-person work for all sectors of business.

  • 60% of Michiganders (4,858,150 residents), plus two weeks:

    • Increases indoor capacity at sports stadiums to 25%.

    • Increases indoor capacity at conference centers/banquet halls/funeral homes to 25%.

    • Increases capacity at exercise facilities and gyms to 50%.

    • Lifts the curfew on restaurants and bars.

  • 65% of Michiganders (5,262,996 residents), plus two weeks:

    • Lifts all indoor % capacity limits, requiring only social distancing between parties.

    • Further relaxes limits on residential social gatherings.

  • 70% of Michiganders (5,667,842 residents), plus two weeks:

    • Lifts the Gatherings and Face Masks Order such that MDHHS will no longer employ broad mitigation measures unless unanticipated circumstances arise, such as the spread of vaccine-resistant variants​
