DETROIT – Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is asking residents statewide to celebrate New Year’s Eve locally while remaining low-key.
Speaking at a COVID briefing Tuesday, Whitmer specifically asked everyone to stay home for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
“We are coming through the end of 2020 in a stronger position than most, because of you,” said Whitmer.
She noted that COVID-19 numbers in Michigan are a lot lower than other neighboring midwestern states.
Local 4 reporter Kim DeGiulio did a little digging and found out a few things that are safe to do around Metro Detroit for the upcoming holiday.
She spoke to employees of Detroit’s popular Apparatus Room, a trendy restaurant in the Foundation Hotel about what it is doing differently this year.
