Following closely on the heels of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s announced relaxation of some of the state’s restrictions lingering from the pandemic, several business groups have stepped out in response.

Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association President & CEO Justin Winslow, issued this statement in response to Gov. Whitmer’s announcement regarding capacity restrictions:

“The Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association welcomes the clear guidance today from MDHHS towards Michigan’s full economic reintegration and take​s solace in knowing that our advocacy on behalf of event and banquet centers will prevent the outright loss of another wedding, graduation and conference season.
