St. Louis County COVID-19 Update
Flu Season​
As discussed by Dr. Page this morning, the flu season is approaching and now is the time to get your flu shot. Getting a flu shot has always been a key step in staying healthy, but during the COVID-19 pandemic it’s even more important to protect yourself, your family and your friends
 Common symptoms of COVID-19- such as fever, cough, congestion and difficulty breathing – are similar to the symptoms of the flu. Receiving a flu shot decreases your chances of getting the flu or makes an infection with the flu less severe. At the same time, keeping people healthy and out of hospitals for flu treatment supports our community by preserving our capacity to provide hospital care for those with COVID-19.
 The CDC recommends that everyone six months and older receive a flu shot, unless they have a medical reason not to do so. Those recommendations can be found online here
 Flu viruses typically circulate from late fall through early spring. While most people who become ill with the flu recover without serious complications, the flu can be associated with serious illnesses that require hospitalization. Those who are particularly vulnerable to the flu, including older adults, very young children, pregnant women and people with chronic medical conditions.
The cautionary steps to reduce the spread of COVID-19, such as keeping social distance, wearing masks in public and washing hands, also help in warding off the flu virus. Please continue to take those steps, knowing that they can protects you from both COVID and the flu.
Flu shots are widely available at urgent care centers, doctors’ offices and through many of our employers. Flu vaccines will also be available for free at all St. Louis County Department of Public Health clinical locations. As a drive up service, flu shots will be given at John C. Murphy Health Center in Berkeley and the South County Health Center and at other pop-up events across the county starting in late September.
 By the end of this week, flu shot appointments can be made online at stlcorona.com. Click on the testing link to get started.

Hunter Park Reopening Plan - Approved

posted Sep 4, 2020, 12:13 PM by City Clerk   [ updated Sep 4, 2020, 12:30 PM ]

On September 4, 2020, the St. Louis County Department of Health approved the city’s playground reopening plan and signage. As was discussed at the August 24, 2020 Board of Alderpersons meeting, once approved, the playground would not open until the signage was installed. The signage was ordered on September 4, 2020. We will continue to keep residents apprised in regards to the status of the reopening. Please do not remove the caution tape surrounding the playground and please refrain from utilizing the playground until city officials have installed the required signage. We appreciate your continued patience. 

Attached please find the following:

  • Approved reopening plan
  • Approved Signage

Please see the St. Louis County Department of Health Face Covering Modified Guidelines that went into effect on August 24, 2020.

St. Louis County Face Covering Guidelines - 8/24/2020

In addition to the approval of the reopening plan, the St. Louis County Department of Health provided the following statement:

Warning:  Scientific evidence clearly establishes that when groups of individuals gather together or are exposed to others outside of their own households there is a higher risk of transmission of COVID-19.  While this operations plan has been approved by the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health (DPH) because it meets the minimum standards to provide protective measures, if actually followed, a risk still exists for transmission of the virus.  All visitors of to the playgrounds need to understand the risks of gatherings and exposure to others and to personally assume those risks. DPH does not guarantee the safety of visitors of the playgrounds ​with respect to the dangers of potential transmission of COVID-19 by approving this operations plan.

Face Covering Order Amendment


Effective Monday, August 24th, the Face Covering Order has been amended to the following changes: 

  • Requires masks to be worn in educational institutions, public or private, in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade (K-12).
  • There are a few times during the school day that a student can remove their masks:
    • While at recess or in physical education class, as long as students are at least 6 feet apart;
    • While participating in band, choir, or music class, as long as students are at least 6 feet apart;
    • While consuming food or drink as long as students are at least 6 feet apart; and
    • In accordance with DPH’s Youth Sport Guidelines while participating in a school sponsored sport. 
  • The Order changes the age for children to wear masks in public accommodations from over the age of 9 to over the age of 5 - to reflect the requirement now in schools. If a 5 year old is attending kindergarten they must wear a face covering.
  • The Order specifically states that businesses "must" deny entry to customers who refuse to wear a face covering. Modifying the language from “authorizing", to "must deny" entry, empowers the businesses to enforce the requirement.​

The St. Louis County Department of Public Health has received many complaints that some businesses are not requiring face coverings.  The clarification of this language should not only assist businesses in enforcing the requirement, but also make customers feel more protected. The Face Covering Guidelines provide alternatives to businesses who provide goods or services to those unable to wear face coverings due to a medical condition or those who refuse to wear a face covering for other reasons. A business can provide curbside/delivery to the customer and a business may allow entry if the person is willing to wear a face shield instead of a face covering.


The amended orders will be posted online at stlcorona.com


Youth Sports Guidance


For clarification purposes, the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health has not amended its Youth Sports Guidelines. At this time, the current guidelines remain in effect until further notice, are posted online in its entirety and can be found here. Again, no changes have occured or plan to be made to Youth Sports Guidance at this time.
