The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services ("MDHHS") announced changes to its Gatherings and Face Mask Order on Tuesday, which include an increase in Detroit casino capacity restrictions to 30%. 

The Detroit casinos were permitted to begin operations at 30% capacity on Friday, March 5, 2021, at 12:01 a.m. Michigan's tribal casinos are operated by sovereign tribal nations and, therefore, are subject to each tribe's capacity restrictions.

"As we continue our vaccine rollout and make steady progress against the virus, we are taking additional incremental steps to re-engage to ensure we are protecting our families and frontline workers and saving lives," said Governor Gretchen Whitmer in a press release.

Michigan Gaming Control Board ("MGCB") Executive Director Rick Kalm issued an Order implementing MDHHS Order on March 4, which outlines the minimum guidelines the Detroit casinos must follow for continued operations at increased capacity.
