On Monday, April 27th, Governor Mike Parson issued the “Show-Me Strong Recovery Plan” for the strategic ‘re-opening’ of the State from earlier ‘stay at home’ Orders issued to combat the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Beginning on Monday, May 4th, all businesses, religious and social organizations may – at their discretion – reopen. However, some common sense guidelines must be followed to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 resurgence in the State.
Under this flexible set of guidelines, counties and cities are given the option of adopting more stringent Orders. On Thursday, April 30th, Greene County did so – issuing an amendment to their earlier ‘stay at home’ order.
As of this writing, it is NOT the intention of Webster County to issue any additional Orders – but to stay with the less restrictive State guidelines.
That being said, the Webster County Health Unit has done a great job in developing voluntary guidelines / “best practices” for local businesses and other organizations to refer to when making their decision on when/how to reopen. Those guidelines may be found among the resources below:
Thank you, and stay healthy.
