Playgrounds remain closed based on the Governor’s Order.

Earlier this afternoon, a statement was issued in relation to the executive order from the Livingston County Health Center, Chillicothe Mayor Theresa Kelly and Presiding County Commissioner Ed Douglas.

The statement issued guidance in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The statement reads:

“This is a continually evolving situation. Expect updates to this order as the COVID-19 Pandemic takes its course.

As of Monday, May 4, 2020, the following applies: Livingston County and City of Chillicothe will now recognize the guidelines as set forth by Governor Michael Parson as the guidelines by which our businesses and organizations are to be permitted to operate. Please look to the specific guidelines found at: https://showmestrong.mo.gov/.

This order supersedes all orders previously issued by the Livingston County Health Center, Livingston County and City of Chillicothe.”

Playgrounds remain closed based on the Governor’s Order.

“We ask the public to use common sense in re-engaging normal activities. Please continue to practice Social Distancing whenever possible. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask in public, that is certainly appropriate but is not required. If you are sick, please stay home until symptom-free for 72 hours.

We need to look to help one another, so please look to help your neighbors and any elderly family members. In addition, we would ask that we all remember that none of us have ever been through something like this before, and we are all tired of being cooped up. So, as we come into

contact with one another again, let us all remember to be as kind and helpful as we can

possibly be.

We will get through this together, and we will all be stronger for the effort!”
