December 2021 - Updated Masking Guidelines

Thursday, December 30, 2021

As of December 23, 2021, Move by BJC will once again require the use of facial coverings within our facility. Unfortunately, recent available COVID-19 data indicates a higher positivity rate. In addition, the Omicron variant is much more highly transmissible. As a result, to provide the safest environment possible, we must implement this change.

When we changed our masking policy in early November, St. Louis was experiencing a sharp downturn in COVID-19 cases.

Data from November 3:

  • St. Louis City daily average cases: 27
  • COVID test positivity rate: 3.6%
  • St. Louis County daily average cases: 132

The current data is trending significantly higher; as of December 21:

  • St. Louis City daily average cases: 74
  • COVID test positivity rate: >11%
  • St. Louis County daily average cases: 402

We appreciate your continued support of Move.
