Missouri Government Actions on Covid-19 Updated 5/12/2020
Today’s update discusses:
- St. Louis area economy reopening
- Kansas City economy reopening
- Two weeks after Governor Parson began the “Show Me Strong Recovery” Plan for reopening Missouri, the St. Louis area has announced plans to reopen on May 18. Health officials have released protocols for restaurants, transportation, construction, and personal services (such as hair salons) to begin operating next week. For larger attractions, such as the zoo, reopening will be further delayed as officials work on plans to re-open these types of businesses and activities.
- The Kansas City economy will reopen on Friday. Non-essential businesses such as restaurants will be reopening for dine-in services with restrictions until the end of May. (For example, “ten foot distancing shall be maintained between tables,” “bar seating is not permitted,” and “employees are required to wear protective face coverings when in all areas open to the public.”)
