Gov. Whitmer announces gyms and pools may reopen, organized sports permitted

Gov. Whitmer announces gyms and pools may reopen, organized sports permitted”

In early August, every region in MI saw an uptick in new cases which recently put MI past the 100,000 COVID-19 cases mark, according to the state.

Maury said the size of Viking Stadium allows for more than adequate physical distancing during soccer games, so the athletic department was more concerned about spectator limits inside for volleyball.

Face coverings are required at all sporting events with 25% capacity.

Gretchen Whitmer lifted restrictions with Executive Order 176 Thursday that previously barred the high school football season. Games will start September 18.

Whitmer did not reopen movie theaters statewide, though they have been allowed to open in the Upper Peninsula and many northern Lower Peninsula counties.

MHSAA will hold a state tournament for schools that want to participate. Such operations include cinemas, performance venues, arcades, bingo halls, amusement and water parks, climbing facilities, dance areas and trampoline parks.

Some more context: This news follows the health ministry's announcement on Wednesday that the Covid-19 vaccination will not be mandatory when it becomes available in Brazil - although the ministry's executive secretary, Elcio Franco, said the vaccine "will be a great tool for us to return to normal".

For indoor organized sports competitions, the order calls upon sports organizers to ensure the live audience is limited to the guests of the athletes, with each athlete designating up to two guests.

Gretchen Whitmer initially issued a state of emergency on March 10. The state's per-capita case rate over the past two weeks ranks 15th-lowest in the USA, and deaths average 13 a day - having stabilized this summer after highs in the spring. "If it means they get to play, they'll do it", Maury said.

"I will not apologize for pushing, advocating, and questioning previous decisions about how the status of fall sports was handled", Detroit school district superintendent Nikolai Vitti tweeted. "We must continue to take this seriously and do everything we can to protect ourselves and all Michiganders from COVID-19", said Whitmer, in a statement.

"In order to protect public health, everyone must continue to do their part to fight COVID-19 by wearing a mask, staying physically distant and limiting large social gatherings under the governor's orders", reads a media release announcing the emergency extension.
