Dozens Of Restaurants To Sue St. Louis County Executive Over Indoor Dining Ban

More than 50 restaurant and bar owners are signing on to a lawsuit, the organizer said, against St. Louis County Executive Sam Page in an effort to keep their indoor dining rooms open.

Page recently issued a “safer at home” public health order, which goes into effect Tuesday and is expected to last for a month. Among other things, it orders bars and restaurants to restrict services to outdoor patios, curbside and delivery. The county executive said it’s a necessary move as coronavirus cases surge across the region.

Michael Saracino, who co-owns Italian restaurant Bartolino’s South, is spearheading the legal action, which has not yet been filed. He said Page’s order puts county businesses at a disadvantage.

“We're not being treated fairly and equitable, as far as all restaurants go. We are being singled out as the main spread of the virus. And so we just feel it's unfair, and we're going to try to right a wrong,” he said.

In The 1980s, St. Louis Police Partnered With Social Workers -- Only To Abandon The Effort

Looking back on her long career in mental health and crisis intervention, Amy Hilgemann remembers the job she had in the early 1980s as among the most fulfilling work she ever did. At the time, she directed Crisis Intervention Services, a collaboration with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

The experimental, United Way-funded program ran for about 3½ years under the oversight of the Magdala Foundation, a local organization focused on serving socially and intellectually disadvantaged people. Police officers were empowered to hand off certain situations to a dedicated group of six social workers, including Hilgemann, whom they could call on from 7 a.m. to midnight seven days a week.

And as Hilgemann recalls it, the program got quite a few rave reviews — both from community members and some people in the police department.

“We would deal with a problem that the police had been dealing with for like five years, and they’d never call the police again,” Hilgemann told St. Louis on the Air.

Missouri Senate Postpones Special Session After Coronavirus Outbreak

The Missouri Senate is postponing its portion of the special legislative session related to COVID-19 liability and federal funding because of positive coronavirus cases in the chamber.

Senate Majority Leader Caleb Rowden, R-Columbia, tweeted on Monday that the decision is “in the best interest of protecting members, staff, and the public.”

Minority Leader John Rizzo, D-Independence, said that on top of the special legislative session, the Senate was supposed to hold orientation for new members, which also has been postponed.

“Those staffers usually conduct the orientation to teach the senators how and when to file bills, go through their office budget,” Rizzo said. “They could not do that because, I understand, that they had people that work in those departments test positive or have been around people that have.”

Study Shows Hybrid Learning Is Effective At Slowing COVID-19 Spread In Illinois Schools

A new study in Illinois shows that, while in-person learning in schools might lead to the spread of coronavirus cases, hybrid learning plans might not be worse for community spread than full remote learning.

Gary Reinbold, associate professor and faculty associate at the University of Illinois Springfield, said he “wouldn’t bet his life” on his research alone. But a study in Spain and contact tracing data in Utah suggest that schools are not increasing coronavirus cases in the community.

“When you use a few different types of research and get the same results, you start to get more confident,” he said, comparing his work to other studies.

Reinbold’s study doesn’t go quite so far as the others: In-person learning looks like it has had some negative effect in Illinois, but hybrid learning and completely remote learning were statistically very similar, suggesting that a mix of digital lessons with some in-person school attendance might be as safe as keeping students at home on their computers.
