ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - St. Louis County has new signage available for all businesses to display, which read "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Masks, NO SERVICE."

Both the County and St. Louis city are more than two weeks into its face mask mandate for all indoor and some outdoor public spaces. 

"However frustrating (face masks) may be, until we have those exceptions, COVID will continue to spread in our community, it will threaten school reopenings and it will threaten our ability to keep businesses open," Page said in his Wednesday morning press conference. 

On Wednesday, Page also stated that the County has given away more than 2 million masks so far, with another 200,000 ready to be distributed this weekend and 1 million more will be delivered later this summer.
