Springfield Mayor Ken McClure Renews Civil Emergency Order Through March 12th

Springfield’s mayor has renewed the city’s emergency order related to COVID-19 through March 12th.

Mayor Ken McClure says the “Seventh Renewal of the Sixth Proclamation of Civil Emergency” is effective at 11:59 p.m. February 10th through March 12th.

“There continues to reasonably appear to exist a state of civil emergency,” McClure said in a statement, “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.

The city’s current masking ordinance runs through April 9, 2021.
