“Show Me Recovery”

During the daily COVID-19 briefing on April 27, Governor Parson announced the first steps of a plan to gradually reopen Missouri’s economy and social activities by May 4th, 2020. 

This plan will allow all businesses to reopen, provided they follow social distancing guidelines (i.e. keeping consumers 6 feet apart). 

This does mean that dine in services for the food industry and bars will be allowed to resume. For more information on what this will look like in Butler county and the requirements for dine in restaurants, please see the pdf attachment below:

UPDATE: {Governor Parson Extends Phase 1 of “Show Me Strong Recovery” Plan Through June 15. At that time we will reevaluate and look at the restrictions that have been placed. Thank you to our community for doing your part.}
