Missouri Senate Postpones Special Session After Coronavirus Outbreak

The Missouri Senate is postponing its portion of the special legislative session related to COVID-19 liability and federal funding because of positive coronavirus cases in the chamber.

Senate Majority Leader Caleb Rowden, R-Columbia, tweeted on Monday that the decision is “in the best interest of protecting members, staff, and the public.”

Minority Leader John Rizzo, D-Independence, said that on top of the special legislative session, the Senate was supposed to hold orientation for new members, which also has been postponed.

“Those staffers usually conduct the orientation to teach the senators how and when to file bills, go through their office budget,” Rizzo said. “They could not do that because, I understand, that they had people that work in those departments test positive or have been around people that have.”

Study Shows Hybrid Learning Is Effective At Slowing COVID-19 Spread In Illinois Schools

A new study in Illinois shows that, while in-person learning in schools might lead to the spread of coronavirus cases, hybrid learning plans might not be worse for community spread than full remote learning.

Gary Reinbold, associate professor and faculty associate at the University of Illinois Springfield, said he “wouldn’t bet his life” on his research alone. But a study in Spain and contact tracing data in Utah suggest that schools are not increasing coronavirus cases in the community.

“When you use a few different types of research and get the same results, you start to get more confident,” he said, comparing his work to other studies.

Reinbold’s study doesn’t go quite so far as the others: In-person learning looks like it has had some negative effect in Illinois, but hybrid learning and completely remote learning were statistically very similar, suggesting that a mix of digital lessons with some in-person school attendance might be as safe as keeping students at home on their computers.

'We Need The State To Act': Missouri Hospital Workers Call On Parson To Issue Mask Mandate

Dozens of doctors and nurses from across Missouri have issued an urgent plea to Gov. Mike Parson: Issue a statewide mask mandate before it’s too late.

With thousands of new cases of COVID-19 being diagnosed each day and patients crowding into Missouri hospitals, some intensive care units are nearly full. But health care workers say the worst is yet to come, and they warn more lives will be lost without a coordinated statewide response.

Dr. Alex Garza, head of the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force, said Friday it has become “painfully obvious” that individual behavior alone is not enough to curb the spread of the coronavirus in Missouri.

“Let me be really, really clear on this: A statewide mask mandate is needed to save lives across the state,” Garza said, adding that the virus is now so widespread that it’s no longer effective to leave the decision up to individual counties and municipalities. “We need the state to act.”

St. Louis County To Reinstate Coronavirus Restrictions On Tuesday

St. Louis County has reinstated restrictions on gatherings, businesses and dining, as the region faces a significant uptick in coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and even deaths.

County officials are calling the new rules “safer at home,” as opposed to the “stay at home” orders from the spring.

The new rules, which take effect 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, require:

Anyone over the age of 5 to wear a mask in public.
Bars and restaurants to no longer offer indoor dining.
Businesses, gyms and religious institutions to operate at no more than 25% capacity, down from 50%.
All gatherings to be limited to 10 or fewer people.
Club teams to submit plans to the county’s health department, though youth sports tied to schools can continue to play.
