Wear Because You Care
The Sikeston Regional Chamber supports the City of Sikeston's "Wear Because You Care Campaign"
The City of Sikeston is encouraging those working, dining, shopping and visiting Sikeston wear a mask to slow the spread of COVID-19. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services recommend face coverings whenever in public to limit the spread of COVID-19.
“Wear Because We Care” is the theme of the public awareness campaign by Sikeston city government. The Sikeston Regional Chamber and community healthcare providers have also joined together to support this campaign. “We would like to encourage the people of Sikeston wear a mask when out and about in the community,” said Jonathan Douglass, city manager, Sikeston. “Social distancing is also encouraged, but when that is not possible, wearing a mask helps reduce transmission.” Douglass added this is not a mandate from the City of Sikeston. “The Sikeston City Council is concerned about the number of COVID-19 cases reported in Scott County and by Missouri Delta Medical Center.”
