We're Back! Update on Michigan Athletics Event Capacities
May 20, 2021: The following is an update from the State of Michigan regarding COVID and its impact on Michigan Athletics event capacities for the 2021-22 season. Earlier today, Governor Whitmer made the following announcements: • Beginning Tuesday, June 1, all outdoor capacity limits will be removed, including at sporting events. Indoor settings will increase capacity from 30 percent to 50 percent. • Beginning July 1, all broad COVID restrictions will be lifted. For the time being, U-M will continue to follow our current face covering policy that requires masks indoors, on university transportation and outdoors if in groups of 100 or more.
Based upon this latest order and what we now know, this guidance from the State of Michigan clears the path for Michigan Athletics events to return to full capacity beginning with the fall competition.
