Columbia and Boone County officials issue a Stay at Home order.
It will go from Wednesday (3/25) morning at 8am, and last for at least 30 days (April 24th).
The officials said at a press conference Tuesday morning (March 24) they are trying to slow the spread of COVID-19. Only leave your house for essential activities. There are several things that count as “essential”…like getting food and gas, visiting the doctor and picking up meds, and exercising outside as long as you practice social distancing.
Curbside services can still be provided by local restaurants.
