Indoor Dining Permitted Starting February 1
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) released a new public health emergency order that will allow restaurants and entertainment-related food concessions to restart in-person dining services beginning on Monday, 2/1/21, subject to a number of limitations and restrictions.
The order, which is effective 2/1/21 through 2/21/21, continues to prohibit in-person work that can be performed remotely. While the new order does not directly impact manufacturing operations, it continues the gradual re-opening of MIchigan's economy.
John Walsh Appointed to Governor’s Protect Michigan Commission
MMA President & CEO John J. Walsh has been appointed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer to the Protect Michigan Commission. Announced in December, this statewide bipartisan commission will advise Governor Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) on policies to ramp up COVID-19 vaccinations to protect the health and safety of Michigan residents and to accelerate the state’s economic recovery.
John and the members of the commission will work quickly to elevate and reinforce the importance of an approved COVID-19 vaccine, identify barriers and develop an action plan to overcome those barriers.
