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:
- Expand testing capacity and volume in the state
- Expand reserves of personal protective equipment by opening public and private supply chains
- Continue to monitor and, if necessary, expand hospital and health care system capacity
- 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.
