Updated March 30th at 7am.

Due to the current Corona virus health crisis, many businesses and organizations are reducing hours, limiting services, or temporarily closing. It is of the utmost importance that we limit potential person-to-person exposure, practice good hygiene, and stay safe and healthy.

If you are experiencing symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing), you can call the the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services at 877-435-8411 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can also contact the City of St. Louis Department of Health at 314-657-1499 Monday–Friday, 8am–10pm, or the CDC‘s hotline at 800-232-6348.

The City of St. Louis has issued a stay at home order effective for 30 days starting Monday, March 23rd at 6pm. Do not leave your home except to purchase essentials (groceries, medicine, etc.), to go to work, or to receive medical treatment. When in public, stay six feet apart from others to minimize contact and transmission.

We’ll continue to update this section as we become aware of more resources available to our Dutchtown neighbors. If you’re aware of available resources, please contact us so that we may add them to this page.

Support Local Businesses and Organizations

Most of the events on our calendar have been or will be postponed, rescheduled, or canceled due to the prohibition on gatherings of more than ten people. As there’s so many events on our calendar, we’d have trouble marking them all as canceled or deleted. We’ll adjust dates and information as events are rescheduled.

We still suggest that you support and patronize local businesses and organizations as you’re able to do so. Many of our neighborhood restaurants and take-out spots offer meals for delivery or carryout, and they could certainly use your business. Alternately, purchasing gift certificates for later use can help keep small businesses afloat while traffic is low.
