Missouri Governor Parson Extends Phase 1 of “Show Me Strong Recovery” Plan Through June 15

On Thursday, Missouri Governor Mike Parson announced that Phase 1 of the “Show Me Strong” recovery plan would be extended through June 15.

The recovery plan relies on four pillars of economic recovery:

  1. Expand testing capacity and volume in the state
  2. Expand reserves of personal protective equipment by opening public and private supply chains
  3. Continue to monitor and, if necessary, expand hospital and health care system capacity
  4. Improve ability to predict potential outbreaks using Missouri’s public health data

In Thursday’s press conference, Parson stated “We are very pleased with how well Phase 1 has gone so far.” He praised Missourians for the progress that has been made in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Phase 1 of the recovery plan includes the requirement that individuals maintain the recommended social distancing requirement of six feet.
