Governor Parson Defends Decision of No Statewide Stay-At-Home Order

Governor Mike Parson is defending his decision to not put into place a statewide stay-at-home order.

During yessterday’s (Tuesday) daily COVID-19 press briefing Parson said that he is still not convinced a statewide stay-at-home order is the best idea for the state.

The governor said rural areas in Missouri are not seeing a spread of the virues like the more populated areas are.

He said a move to shut down businesses could have a drastic impact on them.

As of last night Audrain, Howard, Miller and Saline counties are the only counties in mid-Missouri without a confirmed Coronavirus case.
