Missouri Businesses and Residents Urged to Comply with Public Health Guidelines

Missouri residents and businesses are being asked to comply with public guidelines after Governor Mike Parson and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Department have issued a public health warning.

The warning was issued on Thursday and asks individuals to wear a mask at all times in public and other settings outside your home where social distancing is not possible.

Maintain 6 feet of distance wherever possible, and limit close contacts with other individuals to less than 15 minutes.

The warning also asks residents to minimize travel outside of Missouri for the holidays.

Businesses are being asked to modify physical workspace to maximize and maintain social distancing and ensure sick leave policies are flexible and consistent with public health guidance.

The warning was released with Governor Parson’s decision to extend the state of emergency in Missouri through March.
