Michigan-employed government officials, employees, and contractors must wear masks indoors


The Michigan legislature is weighing whether to prohibit employers from mandating that unvaccinated workers wear masks.

All state government employees and contractors in Michigan must wear a mask indoors starting Monday.

The mask mandate covers those working inside state buildings, whether or not they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19.

There are a few exemptions, for those working remotely by themselves in an enclosed space, or who need to read lips.

Wearing masks remains a contentious issue in Michigan.

State health officials recommended that students and faculty wear masks at schools but stopped short of ordering that it be done.
