CLAYTON, Mo. – St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page has announced more details about the plan to reopen businesses. The county will begin the first phase of reopening on May 18. Page says that businesses should deny service to anyone not wearing a mask.

All places that provide goods, services, or religious services will be allowed to reopen. Businesses that have direct interaction with the public will be limited to 25 percent occupancy. Physical barriers will need to be placed anywhere where social distancing is not possible. Options for touchless payment or service should be provided. Businesses should not let customers bring in outside containers. Full guidance from St. Louis County will be posted here when it is released.

Understanding that businesses are struggling right now; we all must find new ways to move forward. Tom Lancia of Creve Couer-Olivette Chamber of Commerce talked with Ted Twenter, owner and president of Pro Expo Exhibits and Fusion Expo Services, over ZOOM to hear how he is pivoting right now while the Trade Show Industry is shut down due to COVID-19.
