Missouri Gov. Mike Parson on Friday issued a statewide stay-at-home order effective Monday, April 6 until Friday, April 24, 2020.
The order stated individuals living in Missouri must avoid leaving their homes or places of residence unless necessary.
Like many state’s stay-at-home orders, it does not prohibit people from going out for “essential services,” such as grocery stores, gas stations, banks or outdoor recreation, as long as precautions are taken and social distancing requirements are met.
Most US states and DC have some kind of stay-at-home order in place.
