More Permits And Liquor Licenses Suspended In Michigan
COVID-19 protocols are in place and the Michigan Liquor Control Commission is not playing any games and has suspended the liquor licenses of three Mid-Michigan businesses including one in Flint.
I understand that we're in desperate times and small businesses feel like they don't have a choice but to open up. But with these suspensions being handed out, it's kinda like a death sentence.
The licensees’ multiple violations of the current Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Emergency Order on Gatherings and Face Masks include: allowing non-residential, in-person gatherings; providing in-person dining; and failure to require face coverings for staff and patrons.
It's the small things that can get you in trouble nowadays. And regardless of personal or political opinion, as a business owner, your first priority should be the safety of your customers. These businesses decided to go against that and are now paying the consequences.
