Mayor to Detroit bars: Follow social distancing, mask wearing rules or be shut down

Mayor Mike Duggan threatened to shut down any Detroit bar or restaurant that does not enforce capacity limits or fails to require employees to wear masks.

"We saw a few incidences last weekend that were far too concerning," Duggan said during his Thursday briefing at Detroit Public Safety Headquarters.

"You could have two or three establishments spark a new burst of COVID in this community and we can't have that happen," the mayor said. "What's going to happen is what happened in Jacksonville (Florida) and a number of other places. And the (Florida) governor stepped back in and shut everyone else back down. I am not going to allow a handful of people who don't follow the rules to potentially shut down every other business in this town."

Duggan would not name names, but said he was referring to nightclubs and other establishments where even employees were not required to wear masks.

1. bars should NOT be open

the idea that people are going to drink, be masked and stay six feet apart is utterly ridiculous

2. Pull a couple of liquor licenses

And the rest will get the message very quickly.

3. I have a very good friend back in Michigan...

...who works as a bartender in a dive strip club in Inkster.

She mentioned to me that it was mayhem when the bar reopened. I fear for her health.
