City of Wentzville COVID-19 Updates
MESSAGE FROM MAYOR GUICCIONE
We want you to know that we are taking every precaution to ensure the health, safety and welfare of our community. To ensure your safety, we are regularly communicating with and following guidelines from federal and state officials, as well as the St. Charles County Health Department and the CDC. Change is almost the only certainty we can count on right now. This new normal, while hopefully temporary, is in effect to protect the greatest number of people. The best thing you can do to help is to stay at home while practicing good hygiene and social distancing. If you need to order out, support our local businesses many of whom will provide delivery and drive-thru service (more about that here). We will get through this and we will be stronger because of it. #WentzvilleStrong
