Mayor Mike Duggan says Detroit has done great reducing the number of Covid cases and deaths, and he'd like to keep it that way.

So on Thursday he vowed to shut down restaurants and bars that violate the governor's Covid regulations, Fox 2 reports. He said there are been places that have allowed in too many customers and employees to go without masks.  

"We have done way too much work, to knock down the Covid infection rate in Detroit to have us get out of hand because of few business establishments," he said at a press conference. 

"Denise Fair and our Health Department team, along with Detroit Police, will be visiting a number of the bars and restaurants that we saw concerns with last weekend, to put them on notice," he said.

The city will go to court Monday to seek shutdown orders, if needed.
