The Board of Health voted unanimously to amend the Face Covering Order on October 27, 2020. Face coverings are still required by all visitors and residents of Cape Girardeau County when in public spaces unless exempted under 1.04 Provision 2 or the following events occur: 

1. The Viral (RT-PCR) Lab Test Positivity Rate for Cape Girardeau County is below 5% for a two-week period, AND the rolling 14-day case count of new COVID-19 cases is below 200 for a two-week period. The Emergency Face Covering Order will then be lowered to "strongly recommended." The Order will revert to "required" if the positivity rate goes above 10% for a two-week period, and the rolling case count of new COVID-19 cases goes above 250 for a two-week period.
2. A COVID-19 vaccine becomes widely available to the general public
3. A highly-effective, relatively low-cost COVID-19 therapeutic treatment becomes widely available.
