MISSOURI BOTANICAL GARDEN TAKING PRECAUTIONS RELATING TO COVID-19

The health and safety of staff and visitors is the primary concern for the Missouri Botanical Garden, Butterfly House and Shaw Nature Reserve.  

 

Under guidance from the CDC and local health departments, we are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 in our area and the U.S. While there are no known examples of community transmission within the St. Louis area, these seem likely over the coming period. It is also difficult to know how the virus will shift and where the concentrations of infections will be around the world and in the U.S. That means we need to prepare for the likelihood that we will see more cases reported here, and do what we can to reduce risks and prevent further spread of COVID-19 in our region.
