Frequently Asked Questions

Are masks required in Grand Rapids?

The Department of Health and Human Services has issued an updated epidemic order -- Michiganders who are outdoors will no longer need to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. While indoors, fully vaccinated Michiganders will no longer need to wear a mask, but residents who are not vaccinated, or have not completed their vaccinations, must continue to wear a mask or face covering to protect themselves and others. Local governments, workplaces and other businesses may still require everyone to wear masks if they deem it safer for visitors, customers and employees. After July 1, the broad indoor mask mandate will expire. Click here for more information.
