LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is ordering that all restaurants and bars be closed to dine-in customers, effective at 3 p.m., to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The businesses can stay open for takeout and delivery.

A Whitmer spokeswoman says more details will be released Monday.

The state reported 20 new cases of COVID-19 Sunday, bringing the Michigan total to 53. Included in the new positive tests is the first child, a boy in Oakland County, and the first in Ottawa County west of Grand Rapids.
