    CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KMOX) – One of the most popular entertainment venues in the St. Louis area, Topgolf, reopened for business on Monday. The driving range, bar and restaurant has new rules in places to protect guests and employees from the coronavirus.

    Eight-foot tall partitions have been set up between the golf bay lounge areas and a new online reservation process has been put in place to help keep people separated. All golf balls, clubs, game screens and bays will be cleaned between group reservations.

    As for its face mask requirement, Topgolf says, "Guests are required to wear a facemask at Topgolf Chesterfield upon entry to the venue until you get to your bay, and while moving throughout the venue. When in your bay at a safe social distance from other guests who are not in your group, you are not required to wear a mask - this includes while eating, drinking or hitting. Masks are not required for those with underlying health conditions.

    The Chesterfield location is open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday. 

    Although Missouri saw its highest one-day increase of COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic, the head of the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force Dr. Alex Garza says hospital admissions are steady, but he has concerns. 

    Garza says the virus "will not go away until a vaccine comes."
