Michigan: HVAC Certification for Restaurant Openings

January 27, 2021

HVAC systems in institutional and commercial buildings are coming under increasing scrutiny as facility managers and health officials acknowledge the role that these systems can play in the spread of the coronavirus. Now, one state is formalizing HVAC system inspections as part of its plans for reopening businesses.

Michigan restaurants will officially be allowed to resume indoor dining Feb. 1 with a curfew and other COVID-19 safety restrictions in place, according to ClickOnDetroit. The voluntary MI COVID-19 Safer Dining program allows food service establishments to become certified by having their HVAC systems inspected and submitting inspection reports to the state indicating they are optimizing airflow. Once certified, businesses will be featured on the program’s website and receive a copy of their certification to post at their establishment to alert diners of their participation.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services released its next COVID-19 order recently. The revised restrictions go into effect Feb. 1 and last until Feb. 21. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced the order will allow indoor dining at restaurants, concessions at entertainment venues such as casinos, movie theaters and stadiums, personal services requiring mask removal and non-residential gatherings of up to 10 people from two households.
