    Page to discuss COVID-19 surge, appeal of decision limiting health orders | St. Louis News Headlines – St. Louis, Missouri

    St. Louis, Missouri 2021-12-26 23:05:00 –

    Clayton, Missouri (KMOV.com)-St. Louis County Executive Sam Page will discuss the surge in COVID-19 cases in the county at a press conference Monday afternoon, a spokesman told News 4.

    Health officials in the St. Louis region said Thursday that highly infectious variants of the coronavirus seemed to contribute to the surge in cases and urged the public to avoid travel and rallies.

    On Wednesday, more than 1,000 new cases were recorded in the county. It came after several days in a row with an increase in hundreds of cases, health officials say. Dr. Neb Korencherry, director of the St. Louis County Infectious Diseases Department, said the recent surge in cases was most likely due to a variant of Omicron. Wastewater tests show that the subspecies are widespread in most of Missouri.

    Page also discusses the appeal of a court decision made by a Cole County judge in late November. In the ruling, the judge said the order of the Missouri-wide Local Health Department had to be lifted, saying that such an order violated the separation of powers. Citing the ruling, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmidt demanded that the school district withdraw his mask obligations. Some districts did, but others said their mission did not apply to them because they were voted by the elected school board.

    Highly contagious variants of the Omicron coronavirus are widespread in most of Missouri.

    St. Louis County later lifted the mask’s obligations to comply with the ruling, but added that Jackson County (the location of Kansas City) would appeal.
