St. Louis County Department of Public Health COVID-19 Update June 12, 2020

 

Additional Reopening Dates

As announced by Dr. Page this morning, on Monday, June 15, more of St. Louis County will open – this includes fitness centers, pools, casinos, and banquet halls at 25% capacity. All businesses that open must abide by the restrictions and guides set out by the St. Louis County Health Department as outlined here.

Gatherings of any kind are still considered a significant risk. As we move forward, social distancing and masks are critical steps to ensure the health and safety of everyone.

On Monday, June 29, St. Louis County will increase capacity restrictions up to 50%. Capacity increase will apply to all businesses regardless of industry on June 29. This includes funerals, weddings, and anniversary parties, as well as gatherings that have been limited to fewer than 10 people. That restriction will also be lifted and set to the maximum size dedicated by the 50% capacity set by fire code and DPH guidelines.

Outside events will not have a crowd restriction, but anyone in attendance should still practice social distancing and wear masks. All orders and guides will be updated throughout the week and posted here. Some parks are setting individual restrictions for pavilion capacity. Please make sure to check with the venue prior.

COVID-19 Testing Expansion

The St. Louis County Department of Public Health is experiencing an extremely high call volume following the announcement of the expansion of testing. DPH is asking for patience as additional resources are being put in place to accommodate the current call volume. Should you be prompted to leave a voicemail, please do so, as your call will be returned as soon as possible.
