Governor Whitmer just ordered that all restaurants and bars be closed to dine-in customers, effective today, March 16 at 3:00 p.m., though they can remain open for takeout and delivery. Due to this, many businesses may begin to offer delivery or take-out services so contact your local restaurant, pub or retailer to determine their policy. A list of area businesses can be found on our website, www.choosemarshall.com.

How can you support your community?

  • Follow the CDC guidelines to keep yourself and others safe: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
  • Purchase gift certificate or membership from area businesses to use in the future.
  • Tip generously.
  • Donate to a not-for-profit that is supporting others during this time.
  • Be patient, kind and understanding as we all work together.
