Determination Methods:

Michigan Adaption Method –  Replaced the Diocesan Method on September 24.  This Method eliminated taking into consideration any health measures to automatically determine what level of open the churches were required to use.  Instead the churches are allow to open but must follow the requirements of maximum 25% capacity, mandatory mask wearing, six feet social distancing, use of hand sanitizer, following an approved sanitation protocol.  Closure will occur only by State or County mandate, or, as directed by the Bishop or local clergy under an abundance of caution related to conditions in the county.   Click here for full text.

Diocesan Method -The Original Method, it used the number of new cases on a seven day rolling average per 100,000 residents in the county. Ranges were then assigned a color based on that number to determine what level churches were allowed to be open.   Values for instance could be (> 1 <=10) in the Yellow range, allowed attendance would be the smaller of 25% of legal capacity or six feet distancing between household groups, or, Red >25 with full closure of churches.
