KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)
Protesters upset with stay-at-home orders issued to slow the spread of the coronavirus brought their cause Monday to Kansas City, where between 75 and 100 people waved signs and U.S. flags near the city's Country Club Plaza.
Protests against the orders are spreading across the country, with supporters contending that government orders for people to stay home except for essential business are unnecessary and are damaging the economy.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson has issued a stay-at-home order for the state through May 3 but he said last week the state plans to take steps to begin reopening its economy the next day.
A protest is scheduled for Tuesday outside the Missouri Capitol.
