    "Michigan bars, restaurants will require diners' names, phone numbers starting Monday

    The state said there are 12 outbreaks linked to bars and restaurants

    Diners in Michigan will be required to give their name and phone number to restaurants and bars starting Monday in an effort to contain a recent coronavirus surge, according to reports.

    The new rule was put in place by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services on Thursday and also includes limiting indoor gatherings without fixed seating -- like in restaurants -- to 50 people and individual tables to six people, The Detroit News reported.

    The state set a record for new cases Thursday with 3,675, according to FOX 17 of Grand Rapids.

    Restaurants in the state currently operate at 50% capacity and servers are struggling with customers who don’t like the current restrictions, Scott Ellis, executive director of the Michigan Licensed Beverage Association, told FOX 17. He worked with the state on the restrictions but said his association doesn't agree with the contact tracing mandate.

    They have the "leadership" they voted for, so I have to assume the citizenry is on board for everything dear leaders orders.

    I'm glad my governor is too busy playing with blocks to interfere with our daily lives. The big question is whether he'll be able to get that square block in that round hole.

    I'm going to gain weight going out to eat just for the log book. I got a list of names and numbers ready to go and none of them will be mine.

    100% unconstitutional. I will be surprised if it makes it a day. I guess everyone turned off the COVID tracing on their phones.

    This will all be much easier once the vaccination certifications are embedded.

    I hear they will build a massive train system to transport all diners to the restaurants and then mandatory hot showers before dinning.

    It would be best to give the phone number to Whitmer's office.

    I'll bet that does wonders for the restaurant traffic. Next will be getting an ID tattoo on your arm as a convenience and to reduce your time in line and exposure to covid. And if you want to jump to the head of the line, get a number that's prefixed with '666'.

    LOL!! I'm sure that they will. :) They've been doing that here in RI for quite awhile now. :( The first time I encountered it was at one of our local roast beef sandwich chains. I've always been a smartalec so for my name I wrote Myra Breckenridge. ;)
