Two epidemic orders from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services have been updated to allow increased capacity limits. Michigan restaurants and bars can now operate at 50% normal capacity with a limit of 100 people.
The current 10pm curfew has been adjusted to 11pm for dining services. Fifteen people from three different households are now allowed in private residences, and retail stores can operate at 50% capacity. Casinos are now 30% capacity, stadiums and arenas can have 375-750 people, and outdoor and recreational facilities can host up to 1000 people.
These changes are a result of the MDHHS monitoring three metrics of improvement or setback: number of hospital beds with Covid-19 patients, Covid-19 case rates and percent positivity of tests.
