With stay-at-home orders lifted Monday, May 18, businesses across St. Louis county are reopening — many with changes or limited hours.

The St. Louis County Department of Public Health released its guidelines for reopening for individuals and businesses. Full guidelines can be found here.

Individual requirements for what’s being called “Phase I” of reopening include wearing a face mask in public places, limiting social gatherings to fewer than 10 people and consistent hand washing and surface sanitization at home. Citizens are still encouraged to remain home as much as possible.

All county parks are now open, but safety measures are still in place. Citizens are encouraged to wear face masks and asked to maintain a distance of six feet away from other park patrons. Park restrooms, indoor facilities, sports courts, shelters, exercise stations, playgrounds, skate parks and the Creve Coeur Park Soccer Complex are closed.

For businesses, employees are required to wear face masks and practice social distancing, including standing six feet apart from each other and from customers whenever possible. All businesses are required to follow CDC procedures for sanitizing workspaces and educate employees and customers in proper practices.

For restaurants, banquet rooms and bars that serve primarily alcohol will remain closed. Dining areas are required to have limited seating — only up to 25% capacity — with tables at least six feet apart. Booths are required to be partitioned by plexiglass or metal. No more than 10 people in a single party will be permitted to dine together.

Outdoor dining is recommended and restaurants are recommended to take orders in advance to cut down on customer wait times. Condiments are no longer permitted on tables and single-use menus will be disposed of after use by each customer. Restaurants are also required to take names and phone numbers from customers in order to trace the spread of the virus if necessary.
