Coronavirus Is Having Mixed Effects On Missouri’s Farm Economy

Coronavirus Is Having Mixed Effects On Missouri’s Farm Economy

ROLLA — The economic downturn following the spread of the coronavirus in the U.S. has hurt agriculture in the short term but is also providing opportunities for long-term gains. Commodity prices are down again this month, following a trend that has been going on for more than five years. In addition, China’s promises to buy $36 billion in U.S. crops this year and $43 billion next year may not come to fruition. Charles Baron, co-founder of Farmers Business Network, an online farm information and consulting service, said historically low interest rates are another outcome of the downturn, and...

Galloway Audit Finds Problems With How Missouri Confirmed Medicaid Eligibility

Galloway Audit Finds Problems With How Missouri Confirmed Medicaid Eligibility

A new audit found problems with how Missouri’s Medicaid system determined whether a participant in the health care program is still eligible. Federal regulations require state Medicaid programs to check on someone’s eligibility every 12 months. State Auditor Nicole Galloway’s audit, released on Thursday, found Missouri’s system that examined eligibility was error-prone and incorrectly removed people from the program. When changes were made to that system, Galloway’s audit still found that there were numerous eligibility inaccuracies. As a result, determinations about whether people were...

'Nowhere To Go': Some Missouri Renters Still Being Evicted During Pandemic

'Nowhere To Go': Some Missouri Renters Still Being Evicted During Pandemic

Christine Rudolph woke up last week to an eviction notice taped on her front door.  Three days later, she and her 15-year-old daughter were forced to leave their home in Jefferson County.  “I can't even believe it, especially when we’re on a stay-at-home order,” Rudolph said, her voice breaking. “I'm just beside myself.” St. Louis has temporarily halted evictions during the coronavirus outbreak, but in other parts of Missouri, landlords are still allowed to evict their tenants. Despite statewide orders to remain at home, some recently evicted residents are now living on the streets or in...

You’ve Been Put Under Quarantine — Here's What You Should Do

As health officials in Missouri and Illinois try to limit the spread of the new coronavirus, they are directing residents who have COVID-19 or who have come in contact with someone who does to isolate themselves from people who are not ill. Officials in both states say a quarantine is the best way to ensure that exposed people do not put others at risk. In Missouri, public health departments have the authority to quarantine anyone exposed to a contagious and infectious disease. People under quarantine — even those who do not have symptoms — should stay home 14 days from their last exposure...

Missouri's Stay-At-Home Order Adds Few New Limits To Weeks-Old Social Distancing Directive

Gov. Mike Parson’s statewide stay-at-home order to fight coronavirus that began Monday includes few additional restrictions compared to a social distancing order issued more than two weeks ago. According to Parson, that’s the way he intended it to be.  “The first order I done in the state of Missouri was the most strict order we have done,” he said in Monday’s virtual press briefing. “It was no more than 10 people could ever be grouped up together, and six feet apart.”  Parson directed the head of the Department of Health and Senior Services, Dr. Randall Williams, to The order limited...
