Missouri’s governor announced a statewide stay-at-home coronavirus order Friday, leaving only a handful of states without one.
The order allows nonessential businesses to stay open as long as they adhere to social distancing requirements, according to the Kansas City Star.
Most of St. Louis and Kansas City areas, Springfield and Columbia are already under local stay-at-home orders, according to FOX 4 in Kansas City.
After Parson announced the order, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas tweeted, Kansas City’s order “adds additional limits and prohibitions to non-essential activity,” which will remain in effect, The Star reported.
By Saturday, only Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, South Carolina, Utah, and Wyoming had no stay-at-home orders in effect.
