Local restaurants, adhering to Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s order to limit business to take-out or delivery orders only in order to combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), have altered their schedules to be able to continue serving the public. Local businesses, as well, have changed the way they serve the public. In addition, school staff are working to make sure children have meals during the period of time that schools are closed.
The public is advised to check the Tecumseh Area Chamber of Commerce website, tecumsehchamber.org, for any updates or changes to the following information, or to go to the individual business’ Facebook page or website to learn more. Residents are encouraged to support local businesses by going online to order items or purchase gift cards that can be used at later times.
