JEFFERSON CITY, (KMOX) - Missouri Gov. Mike Parson will extend the state's stay-at-home order to May 3, with hope to "reopen the economy and get Missourians back to work."
The governor announced a four-pillar approach to get ready for business in the state to begin. The four steps are: Rapidly expanding testing capacity, expanding reserves of PPP for small businesses, continue to monitor and if necessary expand hospital and health care facilities, and improve the state's ability to predict potential outbreaks through data.
For the first time, the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force is showing data that the region's coronavirus curve is flattening, but say this is no time to ease social distancing.
