Jefferson City Mayor Carrie Tergin says Cole County’s Stay at Home order is an attempt to protect you and those folks who work in essential businesses, like grocery stores, gas stations, and pharmacies.
“Out of respect for them, it’s important that those of us who are not in those positions not be out.”
That order is in place until at least April 11. Jefferson City police on Monday said they are reaching out to non-essential businesses that haven’t closed yet. Get more info on what Cole County considers an essential business here.
