Michigan State Medical Society on State’s Eased COVID-19 Restrictions

Thursday, May 20, 2021

The following is a public statement from Pino D. Colone, MD, president of the Michigan State Medical Society, in response to the State of Michigan’s announcement that COVID-19 restrictions would continue to be eased.

“The Governor and state health officials have laid out a path for lifting COVID-19 restrictions in Michigan, and that is a tribute to the sacrifice of people and the willingness of so many to get vaccinated.  But let this be clear: we still need to do more when it comes to vaccinations.  While our numbers have slowed, we need to continue our progress in order to protect people and further our move back to normal.”
