The state of Missouri’s about to take another step toward moving beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

Next Tuesday marks the beginning of the second phase of the ‘Show Me Strong Recovery Plan’ for Missouri.

Governor Mike Parson made the announcement during his Thursday press briefing in Jefferson City.

Governor Parson says Missouri’s meeting the four pillars needed to move ahead, which include COVID-19 testing capabilities, abundant PPE supplies, hospital capacity and data.
