First Lady Teresa Parson @FirstLadyTeresa
Fellow Missourians, out of an abundance of caution, @GovParsonMO and I have chosen to postpone our fall festival. We plan to have it also coincide with our annual Trick-or-Treating event. Further details to be released soon.

From the CDC:

…Avoid these higher risk activities to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19:

Participating in traditional trick-or-treating where treats are handed to children who go door to door
Having trunk-or-treat where treats are handed out from trunks of cars lined up in large parking lots
Attending crowded costume parties held indoors
Going to an indoor haunted house where people may be crowded together and screaming
Going on hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household
Using alcohol or drugs, which can cloud judgement and increase risky behaviors
Traveling to a rural fall festival that is not in your community if you live in an area with community spread of COVID-19…

Welcome to Missouri, land of eternal denial.
