The Missouri Veterans Commission says it will restrict access to visitors, vendors, and volunteers at seven veterans homes in the state, including the home in St. James. The restrictions will remain in place until further notice. “This is being done to ensure we attempt all efforts to prevent the virus from entering our home. We will encourage communication with your loved one daily,” says the Missouri Veterans Commission. The decision comes after Missouri Gov. Mike Parson announced the first “presumptive positive” case of COVID-19 in the state. The Missouri Veterans Commission says it decided to restrict access in efforts to protect veterans, families, and staff from Coronavirus.  A spokesperson says the situation will be monitored daily and changes will be communicated promptly to all concerned parties.
