Restauranteurs only had about a week’s notice to finalize plans for re-starting dining.
And they are working under new guidelines to combat the spread of COVID-19.
Bars and restaurants can only operate at 50-percent capacity and have to keep tables six feet apart and workers must wear face masks.
But many officials, public and private, want people to start eating-out again.
The city of Detroit is also making it easier to create outdoor eating areas.
But some owners say they are not yet in a financial position to fully open their doors.
Others say they won’t force customers to wear a face mask, especially those who are elderly.
