EXECUTIVE ORDER

#2020-02

 

March 24, 2020

In an effort to reinforce the order by the State, and to address additional concerns within our community, I am amending the existing order within the City limits of Marshfield to adopt the same language and restrictions issued by the statewide order, and based on recommendations from our emergency management team, to amend Section 2 by adding fitness centers and gymnasiums to the list of facilities for citizens to avoid.  Additionally, the expiration of the restriction in the City of Marshfield is to be determined by the Board of Aldermen.

In its entirety, the current restriction for the City of Marshfield now reads:

1. In accordance with the guidelines from the President and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, every person in the State of Missouri shall avoid social gatherings of more than ten (10) people.  For purposes of this Order, “social gatherings” shall mean any planned or spontaneous event or convening that would bring together more than ten (10) people in a single space at the same time.

2. In accordance with the guidelines from the President and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, every person in the State of Missouri shall avoid eating or drinking at restaurants, bars, or food courts; provided, however, that the use of drive-thru, pickup, or delivery options is allowed throughout the duration of this order.  Additionally, all Marshfield citizens shall avoid fitness centers, and gymnasiums.

3. In accordance with the guidelines from the President and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, people shall not visit nursing homes, long-term care facilities, retirement homes, or assisted living homes unless to provide critical assistance.

4. In accordance with the guidelines from the President and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, schools shall remain closed.

This does not prohibit people from visiting grocery stores, gas stations, parks and banks, so long as necessary precautions are taken to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, including maintaining at least six feet of distance between all individuals that are not family members.

Signed,

Robert Williams

Mayor of the City of Marshfield

The signed order is attached.
