Personal Protective Measures, Mask Up


As communities and businesses are opening, many people are looking for ways to resume some daily activities as safely as possible. Wearing a mask protects yourself and others around you and it has never been more important. It is critical that people continue to wear masks. While there is no way to ensure zero risk of infection, it is important to understand potential risks and how to adopt different types of prevention measures to protect yourself and to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. In general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread. Here are a few things to consider:

  • How many people will you interact with?
    • Interacting with more people raises your risk.
    • Being in a group with people who aren’t social distancing or wearing cloth face coverings increases your risk.
    • Engaging with new people (e.g., those who don’t live with you) also raises your risk.
    • Some people have the virus and don’t have any symptoms, and it is not yet known how often people without symptoms can transmit the virus to others.
  • Can you keep 6 feet of space between you and others? Will you be outdoors or indoors?
    • The closer you are to other people who may be infected, the greater your risk of getting sick.
    • Keeping distance from other people is especially important for people who have an increased risk for severe illness. 
    • Indoor spaces are more risky than outdoor spaces where it might be harder to keep people apart and there’s less ventilation.
  • What’s the length of time that you will be interacting with people?
    • Spending more time with people who may be infected increases your risk of becoming infected.
    • Spending more time with people increases their risk of becoming infected if there is any chance that you may already be infected.

Additional information on personal protective measures can be found here.

 

Reissue Public Health Order 


Capacity limitations increased today from 25% to 50% of fire or building code occupancy with the new public health order and updated guidelines. The guidelines can be found here.

Youth Sports Guidelines


The St. Louis County Department of Public Health has updated the Youth Sports Guidelines. Playing sports with or against other individuals during this time holds an inherent risk that someone may become infected and, in turn, spread the virus to others in their household or community. Please consider this risk when allowing your child to participate in organized sports.


The risk of COVID-19 spread increases in youth sports settings as follows:

  • Lowest risk: Performing skill-building drills or conditioning at home, alone or with family members
  • Increasing risk: Team-based practice
  • More risk: Within-team competition
  • Even more risk: Full competition between teams from the same local geographic area
  • Highest risk: Full competition between teams from different geographic areas.


Tournaments are in the CDC’s highest risk category and cannot be played at this time. Traveling outside of the local community may increase the chances of exposing players, coaches, and spectators to COVID-19. Youth sports teams must compete only against teams in the St. Louis area. Click here to download or view the complete guideline document. 


Safety Planning for Public Events


Please take note that St. Louis County Department of Public Health is still reviewing plans for approval prior to holding any public event.  The following are a few things to consider when developing a plan: 

  • Anticipated crowd size and control, including exit and entry points
  • Preventative measures to eliminate congregating in groups
  • Requiring masks for visitors and employees 
  • Require temperature screening of both staff and guests/visitors
  • Hand washing and sanitizing stations
  • Distribution of food and beverage
  • Ensuring social distancing requirements

​All plans can be submitted via email to business-covid@stlouisco.com

COVID-19 Test Scheduler Available Online


The St. Louis County Department of Public Health is continuing to experience high call volume following the announcement last week of the expansion of testing for COVID-19. Therefore, DPH has developed a sign-up tool for St. Louis County residents to schedule their own appointments for testing. 


This is for St. Louis County residents only; it's important to remember that even if you don't think you're at risk, you should still consider getting tested to protect others. The goal is to detect cases among people who are likely to spread the infection. These individuals include those who work directly with the public, such as medical and residential facility workers, grocery store employees, food service employees and other front-line workers. Early detection in those without symptoms will allow us to take steps to reduce further the likelihood of transmission. 


Testing is available by appointment only. Scheduling is available online here.

COVID-19 Humanitarian Response Program


St. Louis County has released a funding opportunity related to the CARES Act under the Coronavirus Relief Fund related to the humanitarian response program. The goal of the COVID-19 Humanitarian Response Program is to fund programs and services that support the needs of County residents suffering from the effects of the COVID-19 public health emergency in order to promote recovery for the region and mitigate the effects of COVID-19.  


Any organization in St. Louis County that helps meet the social and emotional needs of young children impacted by the COVID-19 public health crisis can apply for a humanitarian relief grant. Applications are being accepted for licensed and licensed-exempt child care providers in St. Louis County and can be reviewed and applied for here


Cloth Face Coverings


Cloth face coverings continue to be a critical component in personal protective measures as additional portions of St. Louis County reopen. When combined with every day preventive actions and social distancing in public settings, cloth face coverings are an additional step to help slow the spread of COVID-19, but they must be worn correctly. 


Wear your Face Covering Correctly

  • Wash your hands before putting on your face covering
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily
