The Michigan Nurses Association released a statement urging residents and restaurants to comply with the state's temporary ban on indoor dining after the Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association filed a lawsuit challenging the ban, reports local ABC affiliate WZZM

"Nurses continue to beg fellow residents to wear a mask, avoid gatherings, and wash their hands," Jamie Brown, RN, president of the MNA, said in a statement. "We urge Michigan restaurants to show leadership by honoring the state's temporary prohibition on indoor dining. While we understand the tremendous financial sacrifice that the restaurant industry is experiencing, saving lives must come first."
