Coronavirus Protocols: Pause to Save Lives Extended by MDHSS

Under the order, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services urges families to avoid indoor gatherings, and only two households may gather inside with strict protocols.

It’s not the “12 days” we think of as we head into the holidays.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced the state has extended the health order originally set forth shortly before Thanksgiving by twelve days.

Under the order, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services urges families to avoid indoor gatherings, and only two households may gather inside with strict protocols like limiting the duration of time spent together, staying 6 feet apart and keeping voices down to lower the threat of COVID-19 being projected through the air.

The order keeps existing measures in place through Dec. 20.

MDHHS has listed key metrics for a safe restart after the 12 days. Those include a flat or declining trend in the percentage of inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients, a declining trend in cases and a declining trend in the percent of COVID-19 tests that are positive.
