St. Louis County to Assist Businesses

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (March 18, 2020)

County Executive Dr. Sam Page on Wednesday asked the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership and its related agencies to make it a priority to help businesses affected by coronavirus.

“As the economic development agencies in St. Louis County, I respectfully request that you prioritize any matter involving COVID-19’s impact on local businesses that may be presented to you,” County Executive Page said in a letter to Rodney Crim, CEO of the Partnership.

“I further request that you consider new and creative ways to use your resources, legal authorities, and personnel to mitigate the negative consequences to our local business community,” Page said. The letter was sent to Crim as head of the Partnership and as a representative of the Certified Development Company, the Industrial Development Authority, the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority, the Port Authority, STLVentureWorks, the World Trade Center St. Louis, and other economic development efforts of St. Louis County.

On March 13, Page declared a State of Emergency relating to the presence and spread of COVID-19 in the St. Louis region.

“St. Louis County is doing what it can to limit the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible,” Page said. “Indeed, we are dedicating the maximum resources possible to help our residents through this crisis. Businesses of all sizes have been impacted negatively by COVID-19. I fear they will be impacted even more significantly in coming weeks,” Page said.

“This is a time of tremendous challenges. Together, we will overcome them.”

St. Louis County Department of Public Health COVID-19 Update

 Epidemiological investigations indicate there is clear evidence of community transmission in St. Louis County.

 

 According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.”

 

 Today, as of 5:00 PM, the St. Louis County Department of Public Health (DPH) has:

  • One death.
  • 55 total positive cases.
  • The following 38 additional cases confirmed:
  • 50-59 years of age
  • 30-39 years of age – not travel-related
  • 60-69 years of age
  • 50-59 years of age
  • 60-69 years of age – not travel-related

  • 40-49 years of age
  • 50-59 years of age

 

  • The St. Louis County Department of Health fielded a total of 330 calls on 3/21/2020.

 

Due to the potential volume of results becoming available, the ability to provide data on each positive case will likely diminish moving forward.

 

As anticipated, the ability to provide reliable statistics pertaining to pending tests or tests sent for analysis has significantly diminished. This is an encouraging step as more people are being tested by more health care professionals; however, it has an adverse effect on the accuracy of the numbers. Additionally, the statistics provided are not reflective of the epidemic, rather they are reflective of the information now available. 

 

St. Louis County to Enact Stay at Home Orders to Prevent Spread of COVID-19

 

County Executive Dr. Sam Page announced on March 21, 2020, that St. Louis County and the City of St. Louis will be adopting new restrictions to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the region. The new restrictions will take effect on Monday, March 23, 2020, at 12:01 AM and will end on April 22, 2020, at 11:59 PM. This will ensure that residents can meet their basic needs and essential services will still be provided. The new restrictions will require people to stay at home when possible. It is just as important to recognize what is not impacted by this as what is. This announcement will not affect the ability of residents to go to the grocery store, the pharmacy, and take a walk in a public park. 

 

The Stay at Home Orders were enacted to prevent the spread of this pandemic.

 

Domestic Travelers (Including those returning from Spring Break)

   

Information regarding the spread of COVID-19 within the United States is constantly evolving and areas of domestic travel are being scrutinized. The CDC does not generally issue advisories or restrictions for travel within the United States. However, cases have been reported in many states, and some areas are experiencing community spread of the disease. Crowded travel settings, like airports, festivals, parties, or concerts may increase chances of getting COVID-19. 

 

There are several things you should consider if you have traveled domestically. Consider the risk of passing COVID-19 to others, particularly if you will be in close contact with people who are older adults or have severe chronic health condition These people are at higher risk of getting very sick. If your symptoms are mild or you don’t have a fever, you may not realize you are infectious.

 

The following states have been identified as Areas of Community Transmission. Please follow the guidance provided by the CDC if you have traveled or intend on traveling to any of these states:

 

United States 

Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, Wyoming

 

For Illinois: 

Individuals who travel to Illinois and stay overnight. This does not include individuals who live in Illinois and who commute for work to St. Louis.
