Missouri Legislature Adjusts Schedule in Response to Coronavirus

Capitol Landscape

The 2020 legislative spring break is set to begin on Monday, March 23, but the Missouri Senate will adjourn a week early in an abundance of caution as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe. The Missouri House will convene next week to pass the FY2021 budget and will then adjourn until after spring break. At the time this newsletter was sent, no legislators, staff, or recent visitors to the Missouri State Capitol had been diagnosed with COVID-19.

As of today, in Missouri, there are currently two confirmed cases of COVID-19. We again urge our MOCAN members to remain calm during this outbreak, and follow the precautions the CDC and Missouri Department of Health have advised. The department has activated a COVID-19 hotline, which is staffed by medical professionals and will provide guidance for both citizens and providers about the virus. The hotline will be active 24/7. For links to FAQs and other information regarding COVID-19, please visit the website of the CDC.
