As the state of Missouri and government officials continue to respond to the COVID-19 Crisis, Governor Mike Parson says they are often asked by citizens, what can they do to help. The following guidelines are the response from the Governor.
- Exercise common sense: If you feel sick, stay home. Do not go to work. If someone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19, keep the entire household at home. Do not go to work.
- Take extra precautions: If you are an older person, stay home and away from other people. If you are a person with a serious underlying health condition that can put you at increased risk (for example, a condition that impairs your lung or heart function or weakens your immune system), stay home and away from other people.
- Protect yourself and others: Avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people. Avoid discretionary travel, shopping trips, and social visits. Do not visit nursing homes or retirement or long-term care facilities unless to provide critical assistance. Practice good hygiene.
- Many restaurants and bars are offering drive-thru, pickup, and delivery options – continue to support these community establishments.
