Safe things to do during the pandemic on New Year’s Eve

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.

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.
