That's a single-day increase of 2,171 cases and 17 deaths from Tuesday.

It comes after the state updated its number of COVID-19 vaccinations, saying that 55% of Michiganders have had at least one dose. This milestone means that on May 24, people can begin returning to in-person work in all sectors, including offices.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced the milestone Monday afternoon.
