Michigan Gov To Lift Lockdown In Northern Regions

The Detroit News reports:

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced Monday the partial reopening of Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. Starting Friday, two regions — 6 and 8, which include 17 northern Michigan counties and the entire Upper Peninsula — will be among areas to see relief from some restrictions.

The plan would reopen retail businesses and offices in those regions starting Friday, including bars and restaurants, which will be required to operate at 50% capacity. Those businesses also must train employees on safety protocol, keep groups six feet from one another and require workers to wear face coverings.

Whitmer has been targeted by heavily armed militia members and Trump cultists. She’s gotten death threats and was hung in effigy during a protest last week.
