Springfield Mayor Extends State of Civil Emergency

Springfield Mayor Ken McClure has extended the city’s proclamation of civil emergency through February 10.

The renewal is the sixth renewal of the proclaimation and will take effect at 11:59:59pm on January 11.

“There continues to reasonably appear to exist a state of civil emergency, and I, therefore, am renewing the Sixth Proclamation of Civil Emergency for an additional 30 days; however, due to the passage by City Council of an ordinance setting out regulations to protect public health and safety from the spread of COVID-19, I do not believe it necessary to exercise the additional powers granted to me under City Code at the present time,” McClure said in a statement.

The Springfield City Council’s current masking ordinance runs through April 9.
