Key local health officials are “walking away” from key jobs in Missouri.

At least a dozen county health department directors in MO have quit since March, after facing threats and harassment over actions they took to slow the spread of coronavirus.

The head of the MO Association of Local Public Health Agencies says its getting more difficult to fill those key positions.

MO is seeing a record number of Covid-19 cases on a daily basis.

Republican Governor Mike Parson allowed the state to reopen in mid-June without a statewide mask mandate or social distancing requirement.
