Michigan Lifts Mask Requirement For Fully Vaccinated Residents | Patch

In Michigan, if you are fully vaccinated, you are not required to wear a mask. How does a restaurant or store know whether or not a person is fully vaccinated? Most likely people will just stop wearing masks and those who opt to wear them will become stigmatized.

And we are not yet at 50% of people fully vaccinated. We may be ok for the summer, but when the cold weather hits and people start congregating in poorly ventilated indoor locations, there will be outbreaks, and then, what will happen?

Keep in mind, mask wearing is never really been about personal protection against infection, it’s been about preventing spread by people who do not yet know they are infected from spreading it.
