HARRISONVILLE - Following the completion of Cass County’s Stay at Home Order on Sunday, May 3, Cass County will be adopting and implementing the guidance from the State of Missouri’s Show-Me Strong Recovery Order.

Some jurisdictions within the county may be adopting their own COVID-19 orders that may be stricter than the county’s order.

Per Gov. Mike Parson’s order, effective 12:00 a.m. Monday through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, May 31:


  • All individuals should continue to follow CDC guidelines for social distancing (maintaining 6 feet of space between individuals) whenever possible;

  • Job duties that require close contact with others should take precautionary measures to mitigate the risks of contracting or spreading COVID-19;

  • Visitors to nursing homes, long-term care facilities, retirement homes, or assisted living homes will continue to be prohibited unless it is to provide critical assistance or in end-of-life circumstances;

  • All retail establishments will be required to limit the number of individuals allowed inside: 1) For establishments less than 10,000 square feet: 25 percent or less of the fire or building code occupancy, and 2) For establishments 10,000 square feet or more: 10 percent or less of the fire or building code occupancy;

  • Schools shall remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year; and

  • Restaurants may begin offering dine-in services provided that social distancing measures are maintained. Drive-through, pick-up, and delivery options continue to be encouraged.

The public is urged to continue practicing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while under this order.

If you suspect that you have COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, call your healthcare provider to let them know before seeking care. It is critical that your provider is aware you may have COVID-19 prior to your arrival at a healthcare facility, and that you follow all instructions for arriving at a healthcare facility.
