Show Me Strong Missouri Recovery Plan

4/28/2020

General Guidelines to Reopen Missouri’s Economy

During the initial phase, we can gradually start to reopen economic and social activity. This will be a deliberate process, and is flexible to adapt to the situation. Some communities may be able to reopen at a faster rate, while others may need to continue restrictions to keep the virus from spreading. During this time, we should limit our activity and interactions and continue to maintain social distancing and practice good hygiene to protect our neighbors and ourselves.

The plan to reopen the economy and get Missourians back to work is based on ensuring a healthy workforce by:

  1. Flattening the curve and expanding healthcare capacity, while utilizing federal programs and deploying state resources;
  2. Making decisions based on Missouri-specific data and medical expertise;
  3. Protecting healthcare workers, first responders, and other direct care workers so that our citizens have access to the care they need;
  4. Looking after our most vulnerable and at-risk populations;
  5. Partnering with community leaders and incorporating flexibility based on each community’s circumstances;
  6. Slowing and containing the spread of COVID-19; 
  7. Implementing a measured approach to mitigate risk of a resurgence.
