The Ford-Wyoming Drive-in in Dearborn now expects to remain closed until June 12 after trying to reopen on Thursday night.
The drive-in says it was served a cease-and-desist order from law enforcement when it was showing movies early Friday morning. Michigan’s stay-at-home order has been extended until June 12, but it appears the drive-in did not know this and thought the stay-at-home order would expire at midnight, allowing them to operate.
The number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Michigan has risen to 56,014 as of Thursday, including 5,372 deaths, state officials report.
Thursday’s update represents 406 new confirmed cases and 38 additional deaths, including 17 as a result of the state’s ongoing review of “vital records” and testing data. Wednesday’s total was 55,608 confirmed cases and 5,334 deaths.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer extended the stay-at-home order late last week, but there are still segments of the state that will reopen this week. Retail opened on Tuesday, with limited capacity, statewide.
