Gyms, sports can resume across Michigan
After months of state-mandated closures, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer reeled back some coronavirus safety restrictions last week and announced that gyms could reopen statewide. Organized sports can also resume this month — just as long as people wear face masks. Whitmer’s administration allows but still recommends against contact-heavy sports like football, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, hockey, wrestling, field hockey, boxing and martial arts.
The Michigan High School Athletic Association Council still voted to reinstate sports last week. Whitmer’s order allows typical fall sports like volleyball, soccer and swimming to start this week. Meanwhile, Michigan now tracks more than 107,000 COVID-19 cases and 6,500 deaths, including more than 2,800 cases and 62 deaths reported from the Greater Lansing region.
