The City of Ozark announced the extension of their stay at home order until May 3, bringing them in line with other cities and counties within the region.
Mayor Rick Gardner signed the updated order which included an amendment similar to other communities that allowed limited reopening of some businesses deemed to be “non-essential.”
“Ozark has been working together with the city of Nixa to come up with a synonymous plan which not only protects our communities, but also begins the journey back to normalcy and a vitalized economy,” Mayor Gardner said in a statement.
Businesses who cannot provide services in a remote manner such as delivery or curbside pickup are still considered to be “non-essential” in the city and cannot reopen for business.
“We hope to see everyone enjoying Ozark, and Nixa, again soon,” Gardner said.
