The coronavirus pandemic has changed the world as we know it. As the majority of people remain in quarantine to respect social distancing measures, it’s quite apparent that mayors and politicians across the world are pushing to reopen the economy. Unfortunately, relaunching the economy at this point comes with the possibility of spreading the virus even further.
Missouri has successfully flattened the curve but it’s still dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. However, the governor of Missouri has now announced that live events will be able to resume this week. This is a major move for Missouri since the pandemic isn’t completely over with and social gatherings have proven to cause outbreaks. However, per Missouri’s Show Me Strong recovery plan, live events and gatherings of that sort will still have to abide by social distancing measures. Concert, theatre or venue “seating shall be spaced out according to social distancing requirements.”
Despite the order that concerts can resume, major hubs in Missouri like St. Louis, Springfield and Kansas City won’t be rushing to host concerts anytime soon since the Stay At Home orders are still in full effect.
The new plan also allows retail stores and restaurants to resume business, though they too will have to adhere to social distancing regulations in order to keep residents of the state protected from coronavirus.
