KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Restaurants and taverns in Clay County will be able to remain open until midnight, according to an amended county health order.

The Clay County Public Health Center announced on Wednesday night the amendment to its emergency order.

While business hours will be extended beginning at midnight on Jan. 14, occupancy still is limited to 50% capacity.

Guests must be seated and wearing a face covering unless they are “actively eating or drinking,” according to the order.

No more than 10 people can be in one party, and seating must be spaced at least 6 feet apart.

The order will continue until further notice.

Tighter restrictions that required restaurants and bars to close at 10 p.m. had been enacted in November.
