Michigan restaurants and bars could sell cocktails and liquor for pickup or delivery and would see a temporary cut in state liquor prices under fast-tracked legislation that supporters hope will help the industry survive the coronavirus pandemic. The state already lets bars and restaurants sell unopened beer and wine to go. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

Overview

Businesses and facilities

Social distancing and gatherings

  • The governor allowed gatherings of up to 10 people on May 21. That’s still the rule for indoor gatherings, but when she lifted the stay-at-home order, Whitmer expanded the size of groups that can gather outside to 100. As of July 30, this rule is now applicable to all regions of the state -- northern regions were previously allowed to gather in larger groups due to slower COVID-19 spread. Participants must still practice social distancing.

Mask mandates

Healthcare status

  • The state’s COVID-19-related hospitalizations have increased slightly, but remain considerably lower than in April. The state reported 460 inpatients, 243 critical COVID-19 patients and 132 COVID-19 patients on ventilators on Aug. 3, 2020.

Schools

  • On June 30, Whitmer revealed her plan to help schools across the state return to in-person learning this fall. The “MI Safe Schools Return to School Roadmap” is a 63-page document that outlines coronavirus (COVID-19) safety protocols for each phase of Whitmer’s reopening plan.
