Meals at Michigan restaurants came with a new side dish Monday: What's your name and phone number? The latest order kicked in from state health department. Restaurants must be able to contact customers if there's a virus case linked to the business. The Michigan Restaurants & Lodging Association insists COVID-19 transmission doesn't occur much at restaurants. The group predicts job losses and more financial strife. Michigan's coronavirus cases have risen significantly, setting a new daily high Saturday at nearly 3,800. The state reported a Sunday-Monday total of 6,709 - an average of 3,354 each day.
