(WSYM) — There have been 873,335 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 18,500 total deaths in Michigan, the state reported Friday.
That's a single-day increase of 1,776 cases and 34 deaths from Thursday.
It comes after the state lifted its mask mandate for fully vaccinated Michiganders. We've also reached 55% of Michiganders having had at least one dose. This milestone means that on May 24, people can begin returning to in-person work in all sectors, including offices.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced that milestone Monday afternoon.
There have been 7,292,394 total doses of a COVID-19 vaccine administered, according to the latest data from the state.
