Governor Orders Social Distancing Across the State

On Saturday, Governor Parson said he is issuing social distancing across the state. That means Missourians must avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people. “Social gatherings” refers to any plan or meeting that would bring together 10 or more people in a single place. People must avoid eating and drinking at restaurants, bars, or food courts in Missouri. However, drive-thru, pickup, and delivery services are allowed. Missourians are not allowed to visit nursing homes, retirement homes, or assisted living facilities unless they are providing critical assistance. Additionally, “schools shall remain closed” in the state of Missouri. This takes effect today and will remain in place until April 6th unless extended.
