Michigan Businesses Cited For Not Following Pandemic orders
The Michigan Department Of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has dropped a list of Michigan businesses that haven't been following the current pandemic guidelines.
These businesses have been hit with some massive citations for dis-obeying the current pandemic orders. I feel like this is a lose-lose situation for small businesses. On one hand, you have a severe drop in customer revenue due to the current restrictions. And in the other hand, you have evidence of a new mutant variant of COVID-19 that's making it's way from the UK to U.S. soil. Actually, it's already here in several states.
MDHHS Director Robert Gordon said in a recent interview:
“I thank the vast majority of restaurant and bar owners for helping us contain the spread of COVID-19 by temporarily closing their indoor service.”
Thanking people for temporarily closing their doors is nice and all, but people are struggling right now. And from the look of it, these violations can add up super fast. Some restaurants are being with citations as high as $11,000 like 'Spangler’s Family Restaurant' in Jonesville. Which for a lot of small businesses is a straight-up death sentence.

But I suggest we start at our local malls and Walmart first before we destroy all of the small Mom & Pop shops...
