MHA CEO Brian Peters

MHA CEO Brian Peters issued a statement June 17 expressing the role the COVID-19 vaccine has had in allowing the lifting of public health orders June 22 that required masks and limited gathering capacities.

Portions of the statement were included in stories by the Detroit Free Press and Crain’s Detroit Business.

“The key factor that has allowed us to get to this point is the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Peters. “The drop in cases and hospitalizations is a direct result of the vaccine’s effectiveness in preventing transmission."
