Missouri Government Actions on COVID-19 – Updated 4/17/2020
Today’s update highlights:
- St. Louis City and County indefinitely extending stay-at-home orders
On Thursday, both St. Louis City and County extended their stay-at-home orders indefinitely. Mayor Lyda Krewson hopes to reevaluate the order in the next two or three weeks, while County Executive, Sam Page, hopes to reevaluate the order in mid-May and to be able to lift the order by the end of that month. Both Krewson and Page recognize the impact social distancing has had on slowing the spread of the virus and agree that now is not the time to weaken those policies. Both of these announcements were made the same day that Governor Parson extended the statewide stay-home-order to May 3rd.
