LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says the plan is for Michigan restaurants to reopen for indoor dining on Feb. 1, two and a half months after an order to close amid a surge in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations. Due to Governor Whitmer’s extension of the dine in closure order, many restaurants and businesses that also serve food may only be open for takeout and/or delivery. A good point of reference for information on business hours and offerings can be found on the Ironwood Chamber Facebook page. Non-contact organized sports can resume starting Saturday. Michigan is among just a few states to allow no indoor restaurant dining and is the only one without a detailed plan on how and when reopening can occur, according to the Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association.
