Michigan restaurants re-open: here are the details



Table for two? Michigan restaurants are open for dine-in service again Monday after being shut down by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services last year. The order came after  a resurgence of new cases of the coronavirus in November.

Not everything is back to normal however, as there are a number of rules and restrictions on how eateries must operate in order to be in compliance with the MDHHS. 

For starters, restaurants can only have 25 percent seating capacity with a limit of 100 people inside, and businesses have to close by 10 p.m.

Tables must be six feet apart, and party sizes are capped at six as well. And just like before the second shut-down, personal information is required at the host stand for contact tracing purposes. 

Still, restaurants are open again.
