On Monday, June 8, restaurants statewide in Michigan can begin to reopen with limited capacity.

Groups will have to remain at least six feet apart and servers must wear masks. Restaurants can fill to 50% capacity.

Of course, this does not mean every restaurant will be ready to reopen, or even choose to reopen amid the pandemic.
