Krewson Considers Renewed Restrictions As Coronavirus Spreads Throughout St. Louis

St. Louis businesses could again see new rules limiting crowds and other restrictions to keep the coronavirus from spreading.

City officials are weighing the decision to put more rules in place, Mayor Lyda Krewson said on Monday during a livestreamed chat. The virus is more widespread across the city, and the rate of people testing positive is still too high, she said.

“We are considering making some additional restrictions, and we’ll probably visit with you about that … unless the numbers get better in the next couple of days,” Krewson said. “The restrictions we are considering would likely reduce some capacity guidelines.”

Any restrictions would likely take into account the younger age of coronavirus patients, Krewson said. Half the people who have tested positive in the week ending Sunday were in their 20s and 30s.
