(MIDLAND, Mich.) Michiganders will see a further loosening of COVID restrictions starting June 1st. 

On Thursday Governor Whitmer announced updates to the "MI Vacc To Normal" plan from Dow Diamond, a minor league baseball park. 

The changes mean that outdoor events will be able to operate at full capacity on June 1st.  

Indoor social gatherings such as weddings and funerals will be able to have a 50% capacity limit on June 1st. 

"As Michiganders have stepped up to get vaccinated and the CDC has released new guidance on masks, we are adapting the MI Vacc to Normal challenge to keep up,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “Starting June 1st, we will be moving forward, faster than excepted, towards a return to normalcy. Soon, Michiganders will be able to celebrate together, have summer weddings and even enjoy a 4th of July barbeque with family and friends. This is what we have all been working so hard towards, and I am so grateful to every Michigander who continues to go above and beyond to keep themselves, their family, and our communities safe. Thanks to them, we can take these final steps towards a return to the normalcy and build our economy back stronger than ever.”   

Starting July 1st, there won't be limited capacity at indoor gatherings in Michigan. 

Michigan will also be removing its mask rules on July 1st.
