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.”
