Michigan Outlines MI COVID-19 Safer Dining Program

In the coming weeks, diners will be able to check the website to see which restaurants in their areas are participants in the program.

Restaurants will be gradually reopening across Michigan as safely as possible, with a curfew and other safety restrictions in place. Part of the state’s effort to get back to business is a voluntary program called MI COVID-19 Safer Dining.

Through this initiative, restaurants can work with a certified heating, ventilation and air-conditioning inspector who will recommend changes to air ventilation to improve circulation, reducing the risk of COVID-19 spread, according to Michigan.gov/covidsaferdining.

In coming weeks, diners will be able to check the website to see which restaurants in their areas are participants in the program. The page will also offer information about inspection requirements.

Michigan.gov/covidsaferdining also provides resources for finding a contractor and more.

As for changes to restrictions that will be in effect as part of the new order from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services:

  • Restaurants and bars can resume indoor dining at 25% capacity and no more than 100 people.
  • Tables should remain 6 feet apart with no more than six guests per table.
  • Concessions can resume at casinos, movie theaters and stadiums.
  • Bars and restaurants have to close at 10 p.m. and collect customer information for contract tracing.
