Boone County Health Orders Get Modifications

Columbia Boone County Public Health and Human Services is modifying a health order in effect until October 6th.

Entertainment venues, bars and restaurants serving alcohol must close by 10:30pm but the restriction on stopping alcohol service at 9pm is no longer in effect.

Food establishments that don’t comply with the health order will be closed until an operational plan is approved by the health department.

Operational plans are now required to be submitted 14 days in advance of an event rather than the previous requirement of 30 days.

All other restrictions of the previous health orders remain in effect.
