April 23, 2020–The current Clark County Stay At Home Order #2020-0401 that is set to expire on Thursday April 30, 2020 will remain in effect until Monday May 4, 2020@ 8:00 am to align with the extension of the State of Missouri Stay At Home Order. As the state of Missouri works toward re-opening with a phased in State-Wide plan, the Clark County Commission and the Clark County Health Department are working on strategies to cautiously resume some normal community activities while keeping many measures in place to limit physical interaction and the spread of COVID-19.
EFFECTIVE MAY 4, 2020@ 8:00 am the Clark County Courthouse will have a lock down in effect until May 18, 2020 @ 8:00 am. Appointments may be made by phone; all appointments will be limited to no more than 10 people.
The City of Kahoka will continue with the current city-wide curfew and all public parks, open outdoor recreation areas, playgrounds, ball fields, batting cages and farmers market will remain closed.
The Clark County Health Department will be fully staffed but the doors will remain locked during this period. Individuals will be seen by appointment only with screening for symptoms prior to entry.
Individuals shall not visit nursing homes, long term care facilities, retirement homes or assisted living homes unless to provide critical assistance. Individuals at high risk should continue to stay home and not interact with others except for vital activities. Individuals should continue to practice “physical distancing” to include maintaining at least (6) feet from others.
Continue to practice increased hygienic measures such as frequent hand washing with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Regularly clean high touch surfaces.
The CDC has issued a recommendation and guidance regarding the wearing of cloth face coverings. The Clark County Health Department has issued guidance that this practice is a personal decision, but individuals are encouraged to continue to wear a cloth face covering as desired or per individual employer policies.
Please stay home if you are sick.
If the spread of COVID-19 in our community or state-wide increases to unacceptable levels the resumption of the Stay At Home Order may be necessary.
