How are you going to open pools & youth activities when the state of MO hasn’t even gone into phase 2?? The governor delayed it til June 15th. Also, kids are the “super spreader” but you’re opening pools & youth activities? Makes no sense.. I get kids are antsy.. but health before politics or recreation..
