The City of Hollister continues to work closely with community leaders regarding COVID-19, the novel coronavirus. In following the leadership of Missouri Governor Mike Parson, Mayor David G. Tate issued a Declaration of a State of Emergency for the City of Hollister, effective at midnight March 20, 2020. To protect the welfare and safety of our residents and businesses, the recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and outlined in President Trump’s ‘15 Days to Slow the Spread’ Initiative, have been requested of local residents and businesses. Promoting social distancing, prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 people or for individuals who are at higher risk for severe illness and limiting all non-critical infrastructure businesses and places of public accommodation to a maximum of 10 people, including staff are a few highlights of the declaration. All municipal buildings and facilities will remain open, with limited access, and continue to provide support to our community during this time.
