Governor Gretchen Whitmer recently signed two Executive Orders, increasing pandemic restrictions regarding bars and indoor gatherings.

Starting tomorrow (July 31st), statewide indoor gatherings will be limited to ten people and bars will be closed for indoor service across the state, including in Regions 6 and 8.   

One of the orders also orders that bars in every region, including those in regions 6 and 8, must close for indoor service if they earn more than 70% of their gross receipts from sales of alcoholic beverages.

Under the governor’s orders, Detroit casinos will also be allowed to open on August 5th, but their occupancy will be limited to 15% capacity. Casinos must also, among other things, conduct a daily entry screening protocol for customers and employees, temperature screening.

Casinos must require patrons to wear a face covering, except while eating or drinking or for identification purposes.
