In November, Governor Gretchen Whitmer and MDHHS Director Robert Gordon announced the 3-week pause which closed indoor dining, movie theatres, in-person learning at high schools and college and more.

That order was set to expire in early December, but Whitmer and Gordon announced a 12-day extension. The latest extension for restaurants will go through Jan. 15, but could be lifted early if numbers continue to decline.
