Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer’s administration has set forth new tyrannical coronavirus mitigation orders requiring restaurants and bars take down names of its customers “to aid in contact tracing and case investigation efforts.”

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services unveiled the order last week, stating that the new mandate would take effect on Monday.

“All dine-in food service establishments must maintain accurate records of the names and phone numbers of patrons who purchase food for consumption on the premises, and the date and time of entry,” the order reads.

Failure to follow these new orders is punishable by a fine of up to $1000 and up to six months in jail.

“While continuing to focus on encouraging voluntary compliance with its Emergency Orders, MDHHS has also issued rules that set forth fines for violations of these epidemic orders. Violations are punishable by a civil fine up to $1,000 and may also be treated as a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than six months or a fine of not more than $200, or both,” the order states.

Additionally, the department’s new orders also reduce the maximum gathering size for indoor gatherings, such as weddings, parties and banquets from from 500 people to 50 people — just in time for Thanksgiving.

Though the daily death rate has remained low since June, Whiter is using the increase in general cases as the pretext to implement this tyrannical contact tracing agenda.

Notably, the ACLU had stated in May that government contact tracing schemes are a risk “to people’s fundamental rights to privacy and association.”

This over-the-top government order is par for the course for Whitmer and Michigan.

Last month, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that Whitmer’s draconian lockdown orders were unconstitutional.

“The liberties protected by the Constitution are not fair-weather freedoms — in place when times are good but able to be cast aside in times of trouble,” U.S. District Judge William Stickman wrote.

Whitmer’s administration is encouraging residents to report such violations of this order and report non-mask wearers to police.

America is faced with a Legion of doom. Recently, two of its top villains expressed their utter contempt for the intelligence and the basic facts regarding their dangerous power-wielding hypocrisy.
