Bars in the majority of Lower Michigan are required to close indoor facilities again due to coronavirus.
On July 1, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued an order forcing bars to allow only outdoor service and to-go drink orders, which just became legal under a package of bills she signed earlier in the day.
Most vineyards, brewpubs and restaurants that receive less than 70-percent of their sales from alcohol can keep indoor dining rooms open. So what is affected? Standalone bars, night clubs and strip clubs.
Bars will have to close at 11 p.m. on July 1, 2020.
