City of West Plains Mandates Businesses to Limit Occupancy to 50 Percent

To help minimize the transmission of COVID-19 in the community, the City of West Plains is mandating that businesses limit their occupancy load to no more than 50 percent capacity.

As part of the Stay at Home Order and accompanying Ordinance passed on March 27, the West Plains Mayor was given the authority to limit the occupancy load in any business at any time.

The Mayor, along with West Plains City Council and City administration, is making this mandate for the health and safety of West Plains citizens. Per the President’s social distancing mandate through April, a minimum of six feet between individuals must be kept to minimize the spread of the virus.

The Stay at Home Order will remain in effect until 11:59 pm April 15. The City will continue to reevaluate the situation in the coming days and weeks. For questions on limiting occupancy please contact City Hall, 256-7176.
