Nearly all of Missouri, including Adair County, remain in the high-risk category for COVID-19 transmission. The health department says this means the order temporarily halting evictions issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention applies to Adair County residents as of now. Information about the eviction moratorium can be found at the CDC website.
