Despite being consistently challenged by her own state, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s administration continues to tighten the authoritarian noose around the Wolverine State’s residents.
Backtracking on reopening plans in the face of coronavirus lockdowns that have caused considerable economic hardship and social unrest, Whitmer’s health experts have taken new measures to make life a little harder in America’s cold northern state.
As of last Friday, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is now requiring restaurants, barbershops, tattoo parlors, recreational facilities, and entertainment establishments to record the names, contact information, and visit times of all customers to “aid with contact tracing.”
According to The Federalist, those found not to be in compliance with the rather intrusive order face having to pay the price- in the form of a $200 fine, a misdemeanor charge (punishable with up to six months in prison), and a $1,000 civil fine for violating state emergency orders.
The order was issued late last week, with officials citing rising cases, hospitalizations and death.
The new state mandates also cut a 500-person occupancy limit down to 50, discourage screaming and cheering (claiming that doing so will increase transmission risk), and that states that children as young as two should be masked.
