CALUMET Mich. (WLUC) - Cafe Rosetta in Calumet will not be reopening this week.

This announcement comes after a court order closed the restaurant for defying state health law orders regarding COVID-19.

TV6 reached out to the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Communication Director Jennifer Holton for comment Wednesday on when the cafe will be allowed to reopen.

She said the decision is ultimately up to Ingham County Court Judge Wanda Stokes.

But, before the decision is made, the restaurant must pass a state inspection.

“The inspection process is to ensure that they are in compliance with COVID-19 mitigation measures,” said Holton.

Holton said if Cafe Rosetta passes its inspection, the matter moves back to the courts to evaluate when it may reopen.
