Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services outlined potential relaxed guidelines for the next reopening phase.

The plan, expected to be fully released in two weeks, could include:

  • Large venues such as bars, pools and playgrounds reopening with occupancy limits.
  • Mass gatherings of some size resuming.

Any venue reopening would need to include a plan to control the spread of infectious disease through social distancing, cleaning, disinfection, contact tracing and customer notification in the event of an outbreak stemming from the venue, according to a news release.

The next phase of the recovery plan would coincide with potential changes to the state order which is set to expire on May 31.
