Statement: Missouri statewide stay-at-home order
The following statement is from Daniel P. Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry:
“The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry supports Gov. Mike Parson’s decision to implement a statewide stay-at-home order. This decision was made out of necessity and we applaud the governor for allowing essential business operations, and those in their supply chains, to continue to operate in an as-close-to-normal manner as is practical. Gov. Parson’s solution strikes a balance between the need to act to combat this public health crisis while also establishing safe, achievable practices to ensure that Missouri stays open for business. Gov. Parson wisely chose to implement a statewide solution as Missourians and the state’s business community were faced with adhering to an increasingly complex patchwork of local orders. This action provides clarity to all Missourians, will help stop the spread of coronavirus and gives businesses the direction they need to modify and continue operations during this crisis.”
