The Mississippi County Commission herby declares a State of Emergency effective Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 at 12:01A.M. CST. This action authorizes the Mississippi County Commission the ability to implement any and all actions available in RSMO Chapter 44. The Courthouse will remain open for business, but is taking precautions to help protect the health of the elected officials and their staff. The Commission will be available at all times and, in order to try and remain ahead of the current situation, will hold a weekly meeting on Tuesday at 8:00A.M. in the County Commission room; this meeting will be held in addition to the regularly scheduled Commission meeting each Thursday at 9:00A.M. In conjunction with the cities of Charleston and East Prairie also declaring a State of Emergency, we, the Commission believe this action to be both preventative and preemptive.
Preventative in that the citizens of Mississippi County Should take the COVID-19 virus seriously and take all reasonable measures to prevent the spread of this virus.
Preemptive in that the Commission intends to position the county to take advantage of all SEMA and FEMA programs made available to the benefit of the citizens of Mississippi County.
Finally, this declaration is not meant to create panic for the citizens of Mississippi County. As of today, the Mississippi County Health Department reports NO confirmed cases of the virus.
James D Conn, Presiding Commissioner
Mitch Pullen, 1St Dist. Commissioner
Darrel Jones, 2nd Dist. Commissioner
