Missouri Governor Extends State of Emergency

Missouri Governor Mike Parson says the state’s hospital system is now being taxed, particularly with staffing, with mounting cases of COVID-19.


During Thursday’s briefing, the Governor announced that he will be extending his executive order for the State of Emergency For Missouri through the end of March.



The governor gave his stance on a mask mandate.



He says there will be guidance provided to county officials, but he also says all Missourians will be expected to take personal responsibility.



The Governor’s briefing was held Thursday morning.
