What You Need To Know About The Stay At Home Order

The state of Missouri and Illinois have issued a stay at home order to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The restrictions begin Monday, March 23, 2020, and will be in effect for 30 days, ending on April 22, 2020. Each state will then re-evaluate the order and determine the necessity for continuance. This is a mandatory order. Failure to comply could result in a Class A misdemeanor.

The restrictions are in place to prevent the virus from spreading at a faster rate and will require people to stay home when possible except for essential activities, which include the following:

Public transit is still available but will be operating on reduced hours. Check individual schedules in advance.

Any nonessential social mixing is prohibited. Per the order, individuals living within the City or County must remain inside their home except for essential activities related to employment, health, safety, and outdoor exercise.
