‘Why would you miss it?’: Many Michigan bars, restaurants reopen

GEN: beer

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) -- Beer is flowing and pancakes are back on the griddle in northern Michigan after a two-month shutdown because of the coronavirus.

Bars and restaurants were allowed to reopen early Friday in northern Michigan in time for the Memorial Day weekend.

The Upper Peninsula and northern Lower Peninsula haven't been hit as hard with cornonavirus and COVID-19.

Some business owners want people from other regions to stay away unless they've been quarantined for a time or restrictions have been lifted in their communities.
