Missouri Gov. Mike Parsons expects health officials will be able to process 7,000 to 10,000 COVID-19 tests a day starting in April, including private testing, he said at a news briefing on Wednesday.
Officials expect positive tests “to climb,” with the increase in testing, Parsons said.
Parsons addressed questions regarding his decision to leave closures of schools, restaurants and businesses to local officials and business owners.
If businesses close or remain open, “it’s up to the private sector,” Parsons said.
Some small school districts don’t have daycare facilities separate from K-12 schools but the large majority of districts have already decided to close, according to Parsons.
