Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has announced that bars and restaurants in the state will be allowed to operate at 50% capacity as opposed to 25%. Entertainment venues (like retail, casinos, gyms and stadiums) may also increase capacity.
Whitmer announced that nursing homes will allow visitation for family members who have a negative COVID-19 test.
Whitmer also announced that the state has been vaccinating 50,000 people per day for the last 16 days. She says the state is 9th highest in the U.S. when it comes to the total number of vaccines administered. She also applauded the workers in Grand Rapids who are manufacturing the newly approved Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
