Columbia and Boone County leaders to give COVID-19 update at Columbia City Hall.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

Boone County leaders will be updating residents on the future of health orders Monday.

The most recent national CDC guidelines are relaxing restrictions for people who are fully vaccinated.

Local leaders have relied on guidelines from the CDC since the start of the pandemic.

The current Columbia/Boone County health order mandates masks while inside and for people within 6 feet of each other outside.

The most recent CDC guidance suggests, whether vaccinated or not, people may walk, run, or bike outdoors with members of your household.

Those fully vaccinated may do some things without masks like attend small outdoor gatherings with others who are fully vaccinated and dine at outdoor restaurants.

But restrictions are still tight for pretty much everything else. The CDC still recommends masks for crowded outdoor events, sporting events, indoor shopping centers, worship and public transportation, among other things.
