Gov. Gretchen Whitmer told FOX 2 she’ll be issuing an order today that will temporarily shut down all bars and restaurants, taking effect at 3 p.m. Monday.
Whitmer, who has announced is working remotely from home or the office during this state of emergency, will be releasing more information later today about the order.
This order will still permit the option for restaurants to make food for carry-out and delivery.
Whitmer said fitness centers would also be included in this latest order, as well as a number of other “large places of assemblage,” though she didn’t elaborate…
Today is also the first day schools are officially closed in Michigan for the next three weeks.
Just late last night, an additional 20 cases were confirmed positive in the state, bringing the total to 53.
One of the latest cases includes a child in Oakland County who had contact with another person infected.
