With indoor dining shut down for a second time beginning Wednesday, Nov. 18, restaurants are once again adapting to keep their customers well fed and their employees working.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced a three-week emergency order Friday, Nov. 13. With this mandate, restaurants must close their dining rooms.
Area restaurants are attempting to get the word out on what they have to offer. Most in the tri-county area are switching their services to pick-up, curbside pickup or delivery.
