#COVID19 Update: #StCharlesCounty Executive Steve Ehlmann has announced a directive and signed an Executive Order that prohibits all restaurants and bars in the county from providing for or allowing on-premise consumption of food or beverages effective at 12:01 a.m., Friday, March 20. The directive is in line with other states and cities, including St. Louis and Franklin counties and St. Louis City, that have issued the same or similar orders to prevent further spread of the Novel Coronavirus 2019 Disease (COVID-19).

“We have been studying this decision for several days,” says County Executive Ehlmann, “and taking into consideration all aspects of what this order means for our community. We feel that keeping them open will affect the health and safety of the residents of St. Charles County.”
