• On February 8, Missouri senators began a conversation of increasing state power to determine local authority restrictions, airing proposed legislation to limit the power of local officials to impose health orders. The state has still fully reopened, and in areas without their own orders, social distancing requirements for restaurants and retailers are non-existent, and patrons will no longer be legally required to stay six feet apart from others in public.
  • As of June 16, 2020, the state fully reopened. All bars and restaurants may operate at 100% occupancy with a maximum of 10 people per party. The Governor has left the power up to each county to impose limits on public life in regard to capacity limits, sanitation, and other guidelines. There is no mask mandate. These orders remain in effect.
  • Restaurants currently have no strict capacity limits, however, tables must be spaced out in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
