Michigan has now decided to ease restrictions for bars, restaurants and other businesses as reported COVID-19 cases continue to decline.
Yes, Michigan. Of all crazy places with crazy governors. In this case, crazy Governor Gretchen Whitmer will allow indoor dining to increase to 50% capacity.
“Restaurants can accept twice as many indoor diners, shops and business can also allow more customers and private gatherings may involve more people under a new state health order set to take affect Friday,” the Detroit Free Press reported.
Michigan is just the latest in a long line of states that now allow businesses to increase capacity, given the declining COVID cases and the rise in available vaccines. Kentucky has also just become another.
“As we continue our vaccine rollout and make steady progress against the virus, we are taking additional incremental steps to re-engage to ensure we are protecting our families and front-line workers and saving lives,” Whitmer said in a statement.
“Michigan is a national leader in the fight against COVID-19, and our fact-based, data-driven approach will help our state rebuild our economy and resume normal day-to-day activities…We all have a personal responsibility to slow the spread of the virus so we can end this pandemic together.”
Whitmer pointed to three specific areas of improvement to explain her decision to allow more people inside Michigan businesses — COVID-19 case rates, test positivity rates and hospital capacity.
What she didn’t say is that a Democrat is now president, and fellow Democrats likely want to see the economy improve when that is the case, but crater when it is not.

When you have to identify something expressly as “data driven and fact based,” you can be pretty damn sure it ain’t.
Well, she is a member of the “ScIeNcE” party “Who believes in truth over facts.”
Michigan are just stupid if they don’t recall this ignorant tyrant continually over reached her authority and violating peoples constitutional rights outrageous and illegal
It’s in the works. Now whether or not it succeeds is another question. There are many low information dullards and Karens in the state who think she has “saved” them.
Sorry governor. You lost me at “national leader” as well as “fact based and data driven”. More importantly, will your husband’s boat be ready for the season?
She’s a complete nincompoop. MI restaurants have been running at 50-75% capacity for weeks.
Right. No one has been enforcing it 😂😂
The female version of a POS is Gretchen Whitmer.
Not a POS… the entire four-flusher…
