Meanwhile, in St. Louis, the county and city have enacted restrictions as close to a shutdown as you can get.
Private gatherings, such as house parties, dinners, celebrations, and social events, with more than 10 attendees are now prohibited.
That includes Thanksgiving dinner because there’s no sunset on this.
More restrictions are being placed on restaurants there. Critics say residents will travel to surrounding counties, like Jefferson, who have no major restrictions to shop and eat.
