JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
Jefferson City Mayor Carrie Tergin joined ABC 17 News This Morning to discuss the county's efforts related to COVID-19.
Tergin talked about the extended stay-at-home order that goes into effect Thursday at noon for Cole County.
On Wednesday, Cole County's health department director announced they will extend the county's stay-at-home order to coincide with a state order.
Health department director Kristi Campbell signed a revised order that will be in effect until noon on April 25. The order went into effect March 28 and had been set to expire April 11.
Cole County's order allows residents to go out for essential services and recreation but limits the activities of non-essential businesses.
Campbell said the new order clarifies some provisions on deliveries by non-essential businesses and adopts limits on the number of people who can be in essential retail establishments such as restaurants.
