REGION — With approximately 60 percent of Antrim County's population now vaccinated against COVID-19, and only seven new cases diagnosed in the last 10 days, with no deaths, life is slowly returning to normal for Antrim County Emergency Management Director Leslie Meyers for the first time in more than a year.

"We've downgraded our Emergency Operations Center, which we partially activated last year, to a monitoring and assessment level," said Meyers, Monday afternoon. 

At least 12,000 Antrim County residents are now considered fully vaccinated, according to data from the Health Dept. of Northwest Michigan, with just seven cases of the virus reported in the county in the last 10 days, the lowest number of cases since last October, and no deaths.
