On June 17, 2021, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services issued a Recission of Emergency Orders. Finding that the COVID-19 positivity rates, case rates, hospitalization and death numbers have decreased, along with the availability of vaccines reducing the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S., the MDHHS rescinds many of its emergency orders, including the Gatherings and Face Mask Order, effective June 22, 2021.

While there are no longer any state-wide restrictions and requirements as to gatherings and face coverings, Michigan employers are still required to comply with MIOSHA Emergency Rules to control, prevent, and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. Unless MIOSHA rescinds these rules earlier, they are set to remain in effect until October 14, 2021.
