The Role Henry Ford Health Systems Played in the Moderna Vaccine Trials | Detroitisit

News of promising vaccines for #COVID19 has brought many of us new hopes and new fears as the end of 2020 approaches.

Current research at Henry Ford Health System, show the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines to be both safe and effective. Both of these vaccines are currently in phase three, which means they are being tested on thousands of people nationally, and internationally, to learn how to stretch their efficacy and safety.

But with these high efficacy rates being announced, it is hard to not feel somewhat nervous about what can seem to be a hasty solution.

In support of the Michigan’s three-week shutdown, the City of Detroit Government announced today, an extension of it's outdoor dining program, Open Detroit. The winter edition of #OpenDetroit will kick off December 1, 2020 and go through April 1, 2021.

“Our local restaurants continue to face challenges as a result of COVID-19 related restrictions on sit-down dining capacity," said DPW Director Ron Brundidge. "With these restrictions continuing into the cold weather months, the extension of the Open Detroit program will give businesses an opportunity to service patrons in a safe manner."

Permits for the summer outdoor dining program are set to expire on November 30, 2020. All restaurants looking to apply for the winter program must apply online, including current summer permit holders.

Applications for the winter program are now open.
