Nixa Mayor announces Phase 2 of Nixa Strong Recovery Plan
Nixa Mayor Brian Steele is allowing his emergency order regarding COVID-19 to expire effective 12:00am on Tuesday June 16th, 2020. This means that the City of Nixa will no longer be placing any requirements or rules on any individuals or businesses regarding the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.
However, the City of Nixa recommends that individuals and businesses continue to observe CDC recommendations regarding:
- Stay home if you feel sick, and contact your physician
- Social distancing
- Avoidance of large gatherings and crowded places
- Continued use of masks and other personal protective equipment
Mayor Steele says, “It is important that individuals and businesses continue to make good choices for themselves to limit exposure to COVID-19 and to help minimize its spread in our community. We have been fortunate to see low numbers of cases in Christian County, and we can keep those numbers low if we all do our part to mitigate the risks. We have all learned about techniques for limiting the spread of infectious diseases in our communities over the last few months. We ask that you don’t forget what you’ve learned and continue to exercise reasonable caution.”
Mayor Steele made this decision following the Governor’s announcement of the 2nd Phase of the Show Me Strong Recovery Plan, which lifts the previous statewide restrictions effective June 16th.
The state of emergency for the City of Nixa will remain in effect so that the municipal government may continue to use state and federal resources to assist our community’s recovery from the pandemic and its economic fallout.
