Detroit is ready for retail businesses to reopen, as soon as Gov. Gretchen Whitmer gives them permission, Mayor Mike Duggan said Monday.
Duggan also said any Detroiters who want to be checked for COVID-19 can get a free test at the city’s drive-thru site at the state fairgrounds starting Wednesday.
The mayor declared Detroit ready for business during his Monday briefing, shortly after Whitmer announced that businesses and restaurants Up North can reopen on Friday, under certain conditions. Those requirements include masks for all employees and cutting seating capacity in bars and restaurants by 50%.
Two weeks ago, Whitmer unveiled a six-phase plan to reopen Michigan. With the exception of the Upper Peninsula and Traverse City area, the rest of Michigan remains in Phase 3, defined as a leveling off of COVID-19 cases and sufficient hospital capacity to meet demand.
