The vast majority of Missouri’s farms remain family owned and operated, making the need to take precautions to guard against the spread of coronavirus even more important. University of Missouri Extension agronomist Todd Lorenz suggests that farmers need to consider how to safeguard their family members that are older or might have underlying health problems that could make a viral infection serious.

Lorenz reminds farmers that considerations must also be taken inside the farmhouse.

University of Missouri Extension has a section of its website dedicated to providing resources for farms and businesses to minimize their risk of exposure to coronavirus.
