Oakland County has ordered that businesses where large groups come together — such as restaurants, bars, and gyms, and theaters — reduce their occupancy limits by 50% through April 5.

“This is a proactive step to ensure that our restaurants and other venues can provide our residents with safe environments and protect their employees,” Oakland County Executive David Coulter said. “We are committed to taking every necessary action to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Oakland County.”

The new rules are to help implement “social distancing” to reduce the rapid spread of Coronavirus.
