The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is relaxing its COVID-19 Gatherings and Face Masks epidemic order.

Under the new order, which goes into effect Thursday (May 6th), and continues through Monday, May 31st, masks are generally not required outdoors unless a gathering has 100 or more people.

In addition, anyone who is fully vaccinated and not experiencing symptoms is not required to wear a mask at residential gatherings, including indoors. New guidance for organized sports no longer requires routine virus testing for fully vaccinated participants if they are asymptomatic. Masks continue to be required for contact sports but are no longer required outdoors during active practice and competition for non-contact sports.

Information on the new order is available atMichigan.gov/Coronavirus
