The last countywide school masking mandate has been rescinded.

As of 8 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 17, Wayne County, the state’s most populous, rescinded its August emergency health order.

“This decision comes after the (Michigan Department of Health and Human Services) expired its public health advisory on masking in indoor public places,” a brief statement read.

On Wednesday, Feb. 16, the state health department relaxed its mask-wearing recommendations, no longer requiring students and school staff to wear a universal mask. This came as Michigan’s seven-day average of newly reported cases, percentage of positive tests and hospitalizations for COVID-19 continued to decline from record highs last month.

Last week, Oakland, Ingham and Washtenaw counties and the Benzie-Leelanau District Health Department in northern Michigan and the Northwestern Michigan Health Department, which covers the counties of Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet and Otsego, have announced that they will lift the requirements. Orders from Oakland and Washtenaw counties will not expire until February 28.

In September, in the absence of a statewide order, there were 16 counties with health department mask orders. School districts outside of these counties were given autonomy to set their own requirements. Many of these individual districts also recently dropped mask requirements, although some remain in place.

In a letter, Wayne County Chief Medical Officer Avani Sheth said masking is still important to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Children should “continue to be encouraged to wear a mask” taking into account their vaccination status, because they or members of their household are at risk, or for other reasons. Masking is still recommended as part of isolation and quarantine periods, she wrote.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends those infected self-isolate for five days and wear a mask for an additional five days. Vaccinated people who have been exposed must wear a mask for 10 days. Those who are not vaccinated or who have not received a timely booster must stay at home for five days and then mask up for five days.

Masking at school has been the subject of much debate, often contentious. There have been protests and school board meetings filled with angry parents. Now school districts are facing lawsuits.

Dr. Christine Nefcy, chief medical officer of Traverse City-based Munson Healthcare, noted this week that there were still high rates of COVID-19 positivity in Northern Michigan and elsewhere in the state. In some counties, particularly western and northwestern Michigan, the seven-day average positive test rate was 15-20%. The state’s seven-day average on Wednesday was around 9%. Although much lower than it was in January, when it exceeded 30%, it is still nearly double the 5% danger threshold established at the start of the pandemic.

People who know they are at high risk of serious illness should remain cautious, Nefcy said. “For anyone feeling uncomfortable with the easing of restrictions, it’s certainly not a bad thing to continue masking or avoid public and crowded places.”

She encourages frequent handwashing and vaccination of children, who are much less likely to be vaccinated against COVID-19 than older age groups.

“I think we all have to try to find the right balance,” she said.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to recommend people wear masks in indoor public spaces if they live in areas with high or substantial community transmission, which means there have been 50 new cases or more per 100,000 people last week. Every county in Michigan is currently eligible, according to CDC and state data.

Rick Sadler, associate professor in the Division of Public Health/Department of Family Medicine at Michigan State University, said he sees health departments adjusting guidelines as transmission levels increase. or decreased. It’s always helpful to wear a mask when few of them are infected, but there is a level of inconvenience people see, he said.

“I think (masking) is a simple, friendly thing to do when we know there are outbreaks,” he said.

As the omicron wave of COVID-19 appears to be abating, statewide health officials are rescinding countywide school mask mandates.

On Friday, Oakland County, the Benzie-Leelanau District Health Department in northern Michigan and the Northwest Michigan Health Department, which covers Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet and Otsego counties , announced that they would lift requirements that masks be worn in school settings.

The Oakland County order expires Feb. 28. Northern Michigan orders end earlier, Thursday, February 17.

These counties are only the latest to make such decisions, as case numbers have fallen from steep slopes in the past month. Hospitalizations related to COVID-19 are down about 50% from record numbers in mid-January. Less than 11% of coronavirus tests were positive on Tuesday, February 8. This is the lowest rate since October.

The Washtenaw County Health Department also announced Friday that it will be eliminating its school COVID-19 masks, isolation and quarantine requirements, effective Feb. 28.

These came a day after the Ingham County Health Department rescinded its emergency orders mandating masks in educational institutions and quarantine and isolation procedures for close contact with the school, from February 19.

This leaves only Wayne County with an order that is not expired or does not expire. “At this time, our mask mandate remains in place,” a spokesperson wrote in response to a question about whether the county intended to maintain its requirement.

“As we see our critical metrics of vaccinations, hospital admissions and cases trending in a direction that tells us the impact of COVID-19 on our community is dramatically improving, now is the time to remove ordering masks for child care centers and educational institutions,” Oakland County Health Division Medical Director Dr. Russell Faust said in a statement.

Oakland County and other officials have issued the notice to give school district administrators time to prepare staff, board members and families.

“The Health Division still strongly recommends wearing a mask in indoor public places, including educational facilities,” the Oakland County statement read.

Health departments noted that federal and state authorities, including the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, continue to recommend indoor masking in public places. , especially when transmission levels are high.

While there hasn’t been a statewide requirement since June, Michigan now has an active public health advisory, first issued before Thanksgiving: All residents, regardless of their vaccination status, must wear masks in indoor public places. The state health department has also recommended universal school masking. “We still recommend masks, but are monitoring the data closely and will provide updated guidance as needed,” a spokesperson reported.

“We are at a point in this pandemic where public health strategies will begin to move more towards personal responsibility as we learn to live with COVID-19 over the long term,” said Linda Vail, chief health officer. Ingham County Health, in a statement. “As a public health agency, we will continue to support local school districts by recommending evidence-based public health measures, educating on current guidelines and practices, and making recommendations to stay safe and healthy. in good health.”

Mask mandates have been a point of community contention since late summer. The issue was hotly debated, often vitriolally and sometimes with threats, in crowded school board meetings across the state. Several school districts are facing related lawsuits.

In September, there were 16 counties with health department mask orders. School districts outside of these counties were allowed to set their own requirements. Leaders in many districts with their own mandates have already removed them. At the beginning of this month, the number of districts to cancel orders dropped by about 20%.

The Northwestern Michigan Health Department cited falling case numbers per capita, hospitalization rates that haven’t risen as quickly as infection rates, and the availability of childhood vaccines.

“Parents have had ample opportunity to immunize their eligible school-aged children,” a health department press release said.

Since November, all children 5 and older are eligible for COVID-19 vaccines. However, vaccination rates among children are low. About 39.6% of children ages 5 to 19 have received at least one injection in Michigan. The rate is lowest, about 26%, among 5-11 year olds.

The state seems to have reached a turning point.

The number of new cases, although still high, continues to decline. The seven-day average of new reported cases has fallen to less than 4,000 a day this week. It was the lowest number of cases per day in seven days since early November. That’s down 59% from last week. On January 19, Michigan averaged 17,595 new cases per day.

Per capita rates, however, are still significant enough to put all of the state’s 83 counties in the highest risk category, according to state data this week.

New school outbreaks were also down. Last week, there were 99 new outbreaks of COVID-19 in K-12 schools affecting approximately 700 students and staff. This is down from 126 new outbreaks affecting around 1,000 students and staff the previous week.

“The mask mandate was always intended to be temporary. It was always intended to be used when we have epidemic conditions that require this safety measure to be in place, ”said Lisa Peacock, health officer for the Benzie-Leelanau District Health Department and the Department of Northwest Michigan Health, at a COVID conference in Northern Michigan. updated this week hosted by Traverse City-based Munson Healthcare.

This story has been updated to include a quote from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on the status of its mask recommendations.

TRAVERSE CITY – Riley Bullough has played a lot of crazy football games between his years at Traverse City St. Francis, Michigan State and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But if we stick to the four-year-old linebacker, it would be the 2015 game against Michigan that the Spartans won on a blocked punt late in the game for a touchdown.

“Definitely the craziest game I’ve ever been to. And there have been some crazy games in the past, ”Bullough said.

The recruiting pipeline between Traverse City High School football and Michigan’s two Big 10 programs has been active for the past 10 years. Just consider that Joe Kerridge, a St. Francis alumnus, was on the other end of the infamous room wearing the corn and the blue.

“These aren’t the best memories of this game,” said Kerridge, the full-back who captained the Michigan team in 2015 and eventually played for the Green Bay Packers. “I feel like every year there’s a stuck punt recap. It was a tough way out and it’s a real testament to how football is.

Saturday’s undefeated encounter at Spartan Stadium is destined to a similar end.

Michigan and the State of Michigan are ranked in the top 10 by The Associated Press for the first time since 1964. Michigan (7-0) is at No. 6 and the State of Michigan (7-0) is at n ° 8.

This will kick off FOX’s Big Noon with ESPN’s College Gameday doing their morning pre-show from East Lansing.

“It’s always an exciting rivalry. I will always get the best of both teams. It’s just one of those games that you look forward to every year, ”Kerridge said.

A trio of former Traverse City football students play in Michigan – Ryan Hayes (TC West), Christian Boivin (TC West) and Peyton Smith (TC Central). All three saw the field in the Wolverines game against Northern Illinois, Smith handing the ball to Boivin on a play and Hayes starting on the left tackle.

“For as long as I can remember, I watched this game and cheered on Michigan,” Hayes said at a press conference Monday. “Some of my family were fans of the state of Michigan, but not anymore. I would still be against them anyway.

Nick Hunter, the Spartans walk-on, is from Grayling. He is in his second year in the red shirt after being part of the Record-Eagle Dream Team.

Bullough said in Michigan that you were “born into this rivalry”.

He and his two brothers, Byron and Max, all played for MSU as linebackers. Their father, Shane, was also a linebacker at MSU. The three Bulloughs were two years apart, so Riley had a season with his older brother, Max, and younger brother, Byron. His sister Holly also raced cross country at MSU.

“We grew up going to this game,” Riley said. “Growing up in this state as a kid, at least around me, you basically identify as a fan of the state or Michigan. Your friends around you are also what you are a fan of. … It means so much to so many people. And being a part of this game and playing it multiple times is just an amazing experience.

Former gladiator Ryan Armor spent most of the 2018 season as MSU’s long snapper before missing the 2019 season with injury. Matt Seybert, also a St. Francis product, had an outstanding senior year for MSU in 2019 before being signed by the Los Angeles Chargers this summer in free agency.

The former West Rocko Khoury student was part of the Wolverines team that won the Sugar Bowl in 2011. Thiyo Lukusa served as a lineman at MSU for a year before being transferred to Arizona. Kevin Cronin was a kickoff specialist for the Spartans.

Kerridge said he felt like he was a bit of an outlier in TC playing for the Wolverines.

“We didn’t really have any alumni who had played for Michigan,” Kerridge said. “Usually everyone was texting me calls and texts about the game from the opposite side, from the Michigan state perspective.” He came back several times playing with the Packers.

Michigan leads the 71-37-5 series dating back to 1898 and has won four of the last 10 games.

Bullough said he plans to return to East Lansing on Saturday. After two years with the Buccaneers and a training camp with the Titans, Bullough retired from the NFL in 2019 and returned home to Traverse City as a real estate broker.

“You’ve just become a part of this family,” Bullough said. “Once you’re done playing there, really for the rest of your life, you’re still bleeding green. Every time you return to East Lansing you always feel welcome. You still feel like part of the team.

Hope Matt Seybert didn’t go too far afterwards Tuesday’s announcement that the Los Angeles Chargers cut him. Four days later, the franchise re-signed the former Michigan state tight end.

The Chargers initially signed Seybert on June 18, giving him the NFL opportunity he had worked for since the end of the 2019 college football season. He played four offensive snaps in the Chargers’ first preseason game of the year before being suspended. Their second preseason game, against the San Francisco 49ers, is scheduled for Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

Being called back by the Chargers is the final leg of Seybert’s winding journey to try to find a home in the NFL.

A native of Traverse City, Seybert began his college career as a stock player in Buffalo before transferring to MSU as a substitute in 2016. After leaving Buffalo, Seybert had to give up his first season at MSU to satisfy the NCAA transfer. rules. He then spent the next two seasons switching between tight end and defensive end while playing sparingly, with eight appearances in two years.

Seybert put himself on the card as a senior redshirt in 2019 when he finished as MSU’s third-best wide receiver, grabbing 26 passes for 284 yards and three touchdowns. He started 11 of the 12 games he played before missing the 2019 Pinstripe Bowl victory over Wake Forest.

A 74-year-old Michigan woman on Monday filed a federal complaint against a county commissioner who pointed a gun at her in a virtual town hall when she asked the group to condemn the Proud Boys.

On January 20, East Bay Township resident Keli MacIntosh called on the Grand Traverse County Board of Commissioners to make “some sort of public statement” denouncing the far-right group in the wake of the riot pro-Trump on Capitol Hill.

Many members of the Proud Boys have since been arrested and charged in connection with the deadly January 6 siege, which left five people dead.

MacIntosh has called on the board to issue a statement against the “violent and threatening behavior of known violent groups” in the wake of the Capitol riot and the foiled plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan. Gretchen whitmerGretchen WhitmerFunding to replace nation’s dangerous lead service lines must stay in reconciliation bill Rise in ready-to-drink cocktails fuels tax fight Ambulance, EMT first responders face ‘labor shortage paralyzing work »MORE (D), according to the trial obtained by the Associated Press.

“I mean, you can tell we don’t have [a] problem with the Proud Boys in our area, but obviously there are Proud Boys issues in the country causing problems, ”MacIntosh said at the hearing as commission vice-chairman Ron Clous stepped out. from the screen view.

MacIntosh explained that although she does not own a gun, she can “certainly appreciate that people want their gun rights protected,” but added that groups like the Proud Boys were given permission “to do more with their guns than go hunting.”

As she speaks, a smiling Nails is shown stepping back into the frame holding a gun.

Nails reportedly invited members of the Proud Boys to speak at a committee meeting in March last year regarding a resolution designating Grand Traverse County as a “2nd Amendment sanctuary.”

MacIntosh felt “compelled to speak up on this issue given the group’s obvious ties to white supremacy and other hateful and violent actions, not least of which was their well-publicized criminal role in the violent insurgency of the capital of our country, ”says the trial.

She maintains that Clous brandished the gun to “inflict fear and emotional trauma” on residents who “may seek to petition their county government.” The action, she claims, deterred her from exercising her First Amendment rights.

MacIntosh said in the complaint that she has been threatened since the incident was made public. Her trial details the physical symptoms she also suffered, including insomnia, migraines, nightmares, heart palpitations, nausea, weight loss and tremors.

She is seeking damages and asking Grand Traverse County to declare that such brandishing of weapons violates the Constitution, according to the AP.

Neither Clous nor the Council of Commissioners immediately responded to requests for comment.

Clous had initially defended his actions, tell the Traverse City Record-Eagle that he was going to “just show the gun and show that I fully support the Second Amendment.”

He said he didn’t know anything about the Proud Boys other than that they had already spoken to the commission.

“It was probably the most respected people who stood up and spoke,” he said. “They were decent guys and they treated us with respect.”

Commission Chairman Rob Hentschel, who can be seen laughing as Clous holds the gun, told Record-Eagle he saw no harm in Clous’s actions.

“I saw it on his chest and thought it was ironic of him to do that,” Hentschel said. “The person was talking about guns and he had one across his chest. I didn’t see him do anything illegal or dangerous with it. He wasn’t threatening or brandishing. He was holding him. just.”

Michigan now has 13 of its 83 counties with a positive rate of over 15% on average over seven days on coronavirus diagnostic tests.

These counties include Macomb, Genesee, Lapeer and St. Clair.

6 reasons Michigan’s COVID-19 numbers are rising

Statewide, the seven-day positivity rate on coronavirus diagnostic tests fell from 7.4% to 10.6% in the past week. The one-day rate was 11.8% for test results reported on Saturday.

The seven-day average of new daily cases fell from 2,482 to 3,965 over the past week.

Below is a more in-depth look at the county-level data, based on two of the metrics used by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

First, a look at the seven-day average positivity rates by county, grouped by state metric.

  • Level E (over 20%) eight counties: Huron, Sanilac, Otsego, St. Clair, Lapeer, Tuscola, Missaukee and Oscoda.
  • Level D (15-20%), five counties: Wexford, Macomb, Roscommon, Genesee and Crawford.
  • Level C (10-15%), 33 counties from highest to lowest: Hillsdale, Kalkaska, Allegan, Osceola, Eaton, Van Buren, Jackson, Antrim, Kalamazoo, Oceana, Ottawa, St Joseph, Presque Isle, Wayne, Ingham , Livingston, Barry, Clinton, Iosco, Bay, Monroe, Cass, Oakland, Muskegon, Shiawassee, Calhoun, Cheboygan, Montcalm, Newaygo, Saginaw, Berrien, Ontonagon and Lake.
  • Level B (7-10%): 17 counties, from highest to lowest: Kent, Gladwin, Mecosta, Grand Traverse, Midland, Lenawee, Branch, Leelanau, Benzie, Alcona, Arenac, Mason, Montmorency, Emmet, Alpena, Keweenaw and Ionia.
  • Level A (3-7%): 14 counties, from highest to lowest: Houghton, Manistee, Isabella, Clare, Mackinac, Ogemaw, Charlevoix, Dickinson, Gogebic, Delta, Gratiot, Chippewa, Marquette and Washtenaw,
  • Low (less than 3%): six counties, from highest to lowest: Luce, Iron, Menominee, Algiers, Baraga and Schoolcraft.

The graph below lets you search any county by name to see the seven-day average positivity rate from March 20 to 26. The graph compares the average of the last seven days to the average of the previous week.

The interactive map below shows the seven-day average testing rate by county. You can hover your cursor over a county to see the underlying data.

New cases per capita

Another metric used by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to access coronavirus risk is daily new cases per capita.
