Whitmer says COVID-19 restrictions will end when 70% of Michiganders get vaccinated

While Michigan still has the worst COVID-19 outbreak in the nation, Governor Gretchen Whitmer says the end of the pandemic is in sight.

On Thursday, Whitmer said that the state would lift most pandemic restrictions when 70% of Michigan residents get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Whitmer says the restrictions will gradually be lifted as part of her “MI Vacc to Normal Challenge.” The phases are:

• Step 1 — 55% of Michiganders (4,453,304 residents), plus two weeks: Allows in-person work for all sectors of business.

• Step 2 — 60% of Michiganders (4,858,150 residents), plus two weeks: Increases indoor capacity at sports stadiums to 25%, increases indoor capacity at conference centers/banquet halls/funeral homes to 25%, increases capacity at exercise facilities and gyms to 50%, lifts the curfew on restaurants and bars.

• Step 3 — 65% of Michiganders (5,262,996 residents), plus two weeks: Lifts all indoor capacity limits, requiring only social distancing between parties, further relaxes limits on residential social gatherings.

• Step 4 — 70% of Michiganders (5,667,842 residents), plus two weeks: Lifts the Gatherings and Face Masks Order such that MDHHS will no longer employ broad mitigation measures unless unanticipated circumstances arise, such as the spread of vaccine-resistant variants.

So far, just 31% percent of eligible Michiganders age 16 and older have been fully vaccinated, and 42% have received at least one dose, according to the New York Times tracker.

Does she really have that much support among her constituency? The majority of Michigan are all in agreement with her? Must be a lot of tv watchers up there, being inundated with heavy msm propaganda.
