  2. “The City of Weldon Spring will take all necessary steps and actions to protect the health and general welfare of its employees, officials, residents and businesses during the COVID-19 health crisis.”

The executive order was issued by the mayor on March 16 and ratified by the full board of aldermen during an emergency meeting held March 26.

The city of Weldon Spring has also closed the Weldon Spring City Park playground to the public until further notice. All pavilion and ballfield reservations have also been canceled for the month of April.
