From Ozarks First
Governor Mike Parson announces that the Missouri Phase One Reopening Plan will be extended until June 15.
Parson says extending Phase One aligns with other Executive Orders, as well as the State of Emergency in Missouri.
He says the efforts are showing positive results and that Missouri is in a good place for testing, PPE, hospital capacity and data.
Parson says the state is extending the Phase One order not because of any steps back but because they want to make sure is prepared for the next phase. Parson says nothing about Phase One has changed.
Parson says there are currently no limitations on how many people can be at a social gathering as long as precautions are taken, and six feet of distance can be maintained.
Missouri currently has 12,673 positive COVID cases and 707 deaths.
