COVID-19 Updates & Resources

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the MVMA is taking steps to protect our staff and our members. In response, the MVMA has created this page as a helpful resource center to help navigate any questions or concerns you may have during this time. We will continuously update this page with valuable information as we receive updates from the MDHHS, MISOSHA, AVMA, CDC, MDARD and other reliable sources. You can access these resources by visiting the Resources & Updates section on this page.


Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued a new order that lifted the state’s COVID-19 restrictions on Tuesday, June 22, 2021. Michigan residents will no longer need to wear masks indoors and indoor businesses can operate at full capacity.

Until that point, MVMA suggests the following for clients coming into offices and/or clinics. You have the choice of any of the following three options:

  • Post signs that unvaccinated people must wear masks.
  • Ask clients/customers if they are vaccinated and require those who aren’t to wear a mask.
  • Require everyone to wear a mask.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has also confirmed with us that veterinary clinics do NOT fall under “healthcare facilities” in any new OSHA rules. We are working to confirm that with OSHA as well. That means anyone working in an office or clinic who is vaccinated does not need to wear a mask. Anyone who isn’t vaccinated must continue to wear a mask for the time being. OSHA may release updated guidelines in the future. At that point, we will be sure to pass along the information.
