Mask Guidance For Vaccinated Covers 46% Of MI Population

From the Associated Press — Nearly half of Michigan residents live in counties where the federal government is urging the fully vaccinated to wear masks in public indoor settings because transmission of the coronavirus is “high” or “substantial.” The guidance affected 31 counties Monday – including large ones such as Oakland, Macomb and Ingham. That’s up from 10 mostly small, rural
counties when the recommendations were issued last week. The counties are home to over 4.5 million residents. Governor Gretchen Whitmer doesn’t plan to reinstate a mask requirement but has urged people to get vaccinated and be masked when inside and among groups.
