Below is the latest action and update of the Christian County Commission regarding the Covid-19 Outbreak and the local response to it. Rather than adding its own emergency action to the mix,, the City of Billings has fallen under the Christian County’s authority and action in this important matter.
This latest action, effective June16, strongly advises and encourages businesses and individuals to take very the seriously the ongoing potential threat of this worldwide pandemic to our health and safety. However, the major change here allows the previous mandated restrictions to expire in favor of encouraging voluntary compliance with recommended actions. In this action the Christian County Commission is in agreement with the State of Missouri and most other counties and communities in the state. All entities in the state, including the Christian County Commission, emphasize that the developments with Covid-19 will be closely monitored, with the hope that further restrictive measures will not have to be renewed.
Please note the sampling of some of the most important measures that members of the public are encouraged to take for their protection, and to better assure that new restrictions will not be necessary in the future.
