Ken McClure Makes Changes...
On Tuesday, April 21st, the Greene County Commission and Ken McClure announced a change to the existing Stay-At-Home order currently effective in Greene County. The original order, enacted on Thursday, March 26th, was set to expire on April 24th at 11:59 pm. The new order extends that time-frame out until 11:59 pm on May 3rd.
In an effort to move forward and start the migration back into something resembling a normal Ozarks existance, Greene County has made some changes to the Stay-At-Home order moving forward that allow certain non-essential businesses to re-open.
These businesses are now able to function by taking phone or internet orders and fulfilling via shipping or curbside pick-up. While this is a big step for local retailers, businesses with more personal contact will have to continue to wait. These include hair salons, pet grooming, nail salons, and auto detailing.
