Parson supports CDC recommendation to limit crowds over 50

Missouri health officials confirm a sixth case of novel coronavirus.

Governor Parson said Monday morning the latest case is in Greene County. That makes three in the Springfield area, two in the St. Louis area, and one in Henry County near Clinton.

Parson says he agrees with the CDC: cancel or suspend public events of more than 50 people the next eight weeks, over growing novel coronavirus concerns. The recommendation on Sunday night does not apply to schools, daycares, or certain businesses.
