Kansas City, St. Louis County town move up reopening dates

(AP) — Missouri’s largest city will reopen with significant restrictions next week, as jurisdictions in even the state’s two urban areas begin to move away from stay-at-home orders spurred by the coronavirus.

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas on Wednesday announced that starting May 6, some “nonessential” businesses may resume with limits on crowd sizes and, in some cases, requirements that contact information of those in attendance be recorded.

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson’s stay-at-home order ends Sunday, but Kansas City, Jackson County, St. Louis and St. Louis County previously announced plans to extend their orders through at least mid-May.
