On Tuesday, Joplin’s mayor signed an ordinance limiting crowds to less then ten people. A lot of businesses have been forced to temporarily close in the last few weeks. Mayor Gary Shaw tells News Talk KZRG this is not meant to be a punishment.
“We want folks to realize that the last thing on our minds to putting our businesses out of order. We’re not interested in that at all. We’re just interested in providing safety for our citizens during this time of crisis.”
