As you may well know, Governor Mike Parson has issued a statewide ‘stay at home’ Order, which will become effective at 12:01am on Monday, April 6, 2020. With a few exceptions, this act merely extends measures already in effect in Webster County to other counties which had yet to enact similar Orders.
Among the exceptions are new requirements for essential retailers to limit the number of people in their facility at a given time (see full text of Order, below).
However, our initial understanding of this new Order is that local definitions of what businesses are “essential” remain intact. We will continue to study the situation, and provide updates as any new information comes available.

We appreciate everyone’s patience in this unusual time in our county’s history. Stay safe.
