Michigan loosens COVID restrictions on restaurants, entertainment venues, and more
STRAIT – Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has put in place a two-step process to reopen the state.
The process begins by easing restrictions on Tuesday (June 1) and ending almost all COVID orders on July 1.
As of Tuesday, there will be no capacity limit for outdoor gatherings and there will be a 50% capacity for indoor gatherings. The Michigan restaurant curfew is also lifted.

With the lifting of outdoor capacity limits, this means that open-air concert halls, stadiums and other outdoor events can take place without any capacity restrictions.
Since there is a 50% capacity cap for indoor rooms, this means restaurant dining rooms can only open a lot. However, the tables will accommodate more than six people and the tables should not be spaced six feet apart. People on dance floors and other common spaces don’t have to distance themselves socially, either.
The 11 p.m. curfew for restaurants has also been lifted. This means that bars can stay open three more hours. There is no longer a capacity limit for residential gatherings.
On July 1, all other capacity limits and the large mask order will expire.
