Even as Missouri gradually reopens, citizens are encouraged to continue taking precautions to protect themselves and others: 

  • Stay home if sick

  • Wash hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer

  • Avoid touching your face

  • Sneeze or cough into a tissue or the inside of elbow

  • Disinfect frequently used items and surfaces

  • Avoid socializing in groups that do not readily allow for appropriate social distancing

  • Minimize travel to the extent possible

Additionally, all businesses are encouraged to do the following:

  • Implement basic infection prevention measures informed by industry best practices

  • Modify physical workspaces to maximize social distancing

  • Minimize business travel

  • Develop an infectious disease preparedness and response plan

  • Do not allow symptomatic people to physically return to work until cleared by a medical provider

  • Encourage telework whenever possible and feasible with business operations

  • Return to work in phases and/or split shifts

  • Limit access to common areas where personnel are likely to congregate and interact

  • Ensure that sick leave policies are flexible and consistent with public health guidance

“As we begin to reopen, we will be prepared, but the virus is still here. Protect yourself and the people you love. Take care of each other,” Governor Parson said. “Together, we will defeat COVID-19. Together, the state of Missouri will come back stronger than ever before.”
