The director of the Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services on Thursday extended the current COVID-19 order, which had been set to expire Tuesday.

The health director for Columbia and Boone County announced Wednesday a new coronavirus order that will allow restaurants and bars to stay open later starting Friday.

Officials said numbers of new cases and hospitalizations are plummeting but cautioned some restrictions are still needed to avoid another surge. Columbia and Boone County are the only areas of Mid-Missouri with such orders in place.

  1. I voted YES, but really think they should be entirely abandoned. There is zero empirical evidence they work, and much that they don’t. The very idea that we should destroy our economic, social, and mental health to contain a possibly maybe could be slightly more dangerous than ordinary virus is insane. COVID is a money machine, and little more. I’ve found no record of any virus being contained once it reaches the general population of a large area with a large population, ever. The evidence is in plain sight. The massive BLM and Antifa protests did not create any significant increase in deaths at all. In fact, deaths declined. Even using the inadequate PCR test that isn’t even being used properly couldn’t produce such an increase.
