Governor Mike Parson

Governor Mike Parson says the re-opening of Missouri is progressing exactly as he’d hoped for.

He says area business owners have come up with some unique ways of getting their goods and services to patrons, while still maintaining protective measures.

Parson commended the people of Missouri for working with local businesses to stay safe, by practicing social distancing and by following local and state guidelines.

The state will likely begin working on what the Phase 2 process will look like this week.
