Stay At Home Order Extended To May 3 In Nixa


The City of Nixa has extended its stay-at-home order through May 3.  But non-essential businesses may now open up in a limited capacity.

Non-essential businesses must take orders by phone, online or curbside pick-up or drop-off.  Customers are not allowed to enter the business.  And they must maintain the CDC social distancing and cleaning guidelines, including the use of personal protective equipment for employees.

Essential businesses may now also perform non-essential business activities, including the distribution or sale of products that are not included in the definition of an “Essential Business.” But essential businesses must continue to follow occupancy limits, according to the updated order signed Tuesday by Nixa Mayor Brian Steele.
