    Dear MGA Members,

    The Missouri Grocers Association understands that while this has been a very busy time for your businesses, there is also so much confusion regarding new rules and regulations imposed at the local levels. Many of these regulations are different from county to county or even city to city and go further than those changes imposed by Governor Parson. We are doing our best to keep up with all these changes. If you are aware of any ordinances in your respective communities that go further than the recommendations of Governor Parson, please let us know.

    In our conversations with the Governor's leadership team, we explained to them how each community creating their own rules and regulations creates confusion amongst businesses and consumers. We need to have consistent rules and guidelines for continued success and customer trust.

    We are also working with our state leaders and grocery industry leaders across the country to ensure that we can get access to Personal Protective Equipment and priority testing for our industry workers. We agree that medical personnel and first responders do and should remain to come first in terms of access. Workers in the grocery and RX businesses are on the front lines and providing vital services to all Missourians on a daily basis, and therefore we need to ensure that their health and safety remains a top priority.

    Our industry remains to be stronger together. Please let us know how we can continue to be of assistance to your stores and communities.
