MASK UP: Mayor Pagano Joins County Leaders in Effort to Slow the Spread of COVID-19 Cases

St. Charles County leaders have joined together to strongly request that all businesses in the county require customers to wear cloth face coverings in their establishments. This plea comes after an increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases in the county over the past several weeks. Mayor Len Pagano says, "Our community works best when we work together. Masking up while helping our businesses stay open and keeping our friends and neighbors on the job is the solution to stopping the spread and beating these challenges. St. Peters is proud to be a part of this united effort!”
