MO TIMELINE FOR PHASE 2 & 3 VACCINE ROLLOUT


Governor Mike Parson announced that Missouri will activate Phase 2 of the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan on Monday, March 29, 2021, and Phase 3 on Friday, April 9, 2021.

“With the progress we are currently seeing and vaccine supply expected to increase significantly in the coming weeks, we are well ahead of schedule with our vaccine plan,”
Governor Parson said. “Supply projections are subject to change, but it is critical that we start preparing for this potential influx and ensure there is a consistent number of people who are eligible and interested in receiving a vaccine.”

The federal government has informed the state that COVID-19 vaccine allotments to Missouri are projected to significantly increase by the first week of April. The timeline for activating Phases 2 and 3 ensures that there is a consistent number of people who are eligible and interested in receiving a vaccine, allowing vaccinators across the state to continue vaccinating Missourians without delays due to those who are eligible but not seeking a vaccine.

Activation of Phase 2 is estimated to extend vaccine eligibility to approximately 880,000 Missourians that are essential to equitable economic recovery, including those employed in construction, critical manufacturing, higher education, and remaining food and agriculture sectors. This also includes homeless and disproportionately affected populations with an emphasis on racial and ethnic minorities, among others.

Phase 3 will be open to all Missouri adults, extending vaccine eligibility to an estimated 1.1 million Missourians who were not activated under any other tier or phase. A complete list of populations included in each phase as well as activation status is available at MOStopsCOVID.com/priority.

With all phases of Missouri’s Vaccination Plan activated, approximately 4.5 million Missourians will be eligible. The state estimates that approximately 60 percent of these Missourians are interested in getting a vaccine.

To date, one in four Missourians have initiated vaccination, and approximately 50 percent of Missouri’s 65 and older population have initiated vaccination. Vulnerable populations in currently activated phases that have not yet received a vaccine will continue to be eligible as Missouri moves into Phases 2 and 3.

“Missouri’s position is continuously improving on the COVID-19 front,” Governor Parson said. “With over 1.2 million Missourians having initiated vaccination, large increases in vaccine supply, and the activation of Phases 2 and 3, we are confident that we are winning the battle against COVID-19.”

SBA and PPP Loan Forgiveness Program

On May 15, 2020, the Small Business Administration (SBA) released their application that businesses will submit to their lender to apply to have their Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans forgiven. The application, which is accompanied by a number of worksheets and instructional pages, provides clarity on a number of critical questions that were facing PPP loan recipients.

There are still some open questions and we anticipate that, in addition to the application document, the SBA will be releasing interim rules relating to the loan forgiveness provisions.  In the meantime, businesses that received a PPP loan, are well advised to review the application and accompanying guidance as soon as possible, rather than waiting until the end of their loan period, in order to identify and take any necessary steps to ensure and maximize loan forgiveness.   The biggest new takeaways from the application are:  the covered loan period, calculation of forgivable expenses, and reductions to forgiveness.

Please view the Small Business Legislative Council’s memo on these provisions.
