Each employee will be provided with a copy of any directive, contingency plan, policy, or other information distributed by the City of Clinton which is relevant to their duties and responsibilities during a particular outbreak.

If services remain in operation, certain precautions must be taken in order to prevent the spread of contagious disease. It has been determined that the following items may help to protect transit employees and our riders, and will be implemented during such an outbreak:

1. All transit employees are required to obtain their current body temperature when arriving for duty. The date, time, and body temperature must be recorded each time the employee reports for duty. Any employee with a body temperature of at least 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, must comply with the procedures outlined in the Pandemic Virus Preparedness Plan.
2. All transit employees are required to wear a protective mask at all times when performing their duties, regardless of the duty being performed. This shall apply even when passengers are not present.

4. All transit employees must maintain a minimum social distance of at least six feet from all other persons while performing their duties.
5. All transit passengers must maintain minimum social distance of at least six feet while utilizing our services.
6. Transit vehicles which have seating for at least seven passengers, but not more than fourteen passengers shall not transport more than three passengers concurrently. Transit vehicles which seat more than fourteen passengers shall not transport more than four passengers at the same time.
7. Transit vehicles must have the seats marked in a clearly visible manner to indicate the correct minimum social distance from the driver and from the other passengers.
8. All transit vehicles must be cleaned and sanitized at least daily. Sanitizing solution and towels or sanitizing wipes will be provided to each driver for this purpose. Employees must notify their immediate supervisor if additional cleaning supplies are needed before supplies are exhausted.
9. Hand sanitizer will be provided to each employee for personal use while performing his or her duties.
10. All transit employees must follow the guidelines of the Pandemic Virus Preparedness Plan or other directives in force during a pandemic outbreak.

In the event that services are suspended, employees may be offered work outside of their normal scope of duties in order to fully occupy the work period if such work is available.

Resurfacing Projects in Henry, Johnson & Bates Counties
Scheduled to Begin Week of May 11

Southwest District – Drivers can expect one-lane traffic and occasional traffic delays when a project to resurface four state routes in Henry, Johnson & Bates counties starts the week of May 11, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

Drivers can expect pilot cars and flaggers directing them through the work zones. Drivers on side roads should wait for pilot cars before entering areas where resurfacing is being done.

Crews and equipment will be working close to traffic and drivers are urged to use caution while traveling through the work zones.

All routes will receive a new asphalt driving surface and new pavement striping.

Here’s a look at the projects:
• Henry County Route AA – from Missouri Route 7 east of Clinton traveling south approximately two miles to Henry County Southeast 200 Road
• Bates/Henry County Route H – from Loop 49 (Orange Street) in Butler traveling east approximately 18 miles to Henry County Route K near Montrose
• Henry County Route K – from Missouri Route 7 in Urich traveling south approximately 17 miles to Missouri Route 52 in Montrose. The Route K bridge over South Grand River also will receive new guardrail at both ends of the bridge.
• Henry/Johnson County Route B – from Missouri Route 2 in Johnson County south of Medford traveling south approximately 11 miles to Missouri Route 7 in Urich

Crews will work Monday through Friday with some work on Saturdays possible.

Drivers are urged to use caution as they may experience a rough ride in areas until the resurfacing project is complete.

Sneak peek: What Ever Happened to Mary Day?

DETECTIVES BELIEVED A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO VANISHED FROM HER CALIFORNIA HOME IN 1981 WAS MURDERED – SO IS A WOMAN IN PHOENIX CLAIMING TO BE HER AN IMPOSTER?*

*Or, did Mary Day live (and die) in Warsaw, Mo.?

“48 Hours” Investigates in “What Ever Happened to Mary Day?”

Mary Day was 13 years old in 1981 when she vanished from her family’s Seaside, Calif. home. What’s shocking is that there is no record of her parents ever reporting her missing. Years later, after her sister got police on the case, they believed she was murdered. But then there was a turn no one saw coming.

Maureen Maher and 48 HOURS investigate the strange case of the missing teenager, the police investigation years later, and a woman in Arizona who claimed to be her, in “What Ever Happened to Mary Day?” to be broadcast Saturday, May 2 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Sherrie Calgaro, who was just 10 at the time that her sister disappeared, was told Day ran away. The family was not allowed to talk about Day, says Calgaro, who was haunted by what happened. When she became an adult, Calgaro reported her sister missing.

“It was a very hard case to deal with … other than the family … Nobody knew she was gone,” says former Seaside Police Chief Steve Cercone.

“My mother told me that there were a lot of places in California that you could bury a body and they’d never be found,” Calgaro says. “I started believing she was murdered.”

Police dug into the case and even brought cadaver dogs to the family home. The dogs indicated there were human remains in the backyard, but investigators could only find a little girl’s shoe. Police focused on Mary’s stepfather as a suspect. Mary’s mother told police her daughter was a habitual runaway.

“I’ve never seen a case like this,” says Cercone.

Then, more than 20 years after Mary Day disappeared, a traffic stop in Arizona turned up a new twist and Cercone got a call he wasn’t expecting. “He told me, ‘Hey captain,’ he says, ‘are you sitting down,’” Cercone says of the call. “He says, ‘Got to let you know that … they say they found Mary Day.’”

Who was this Mary Day? Was she the one who vanished in 1981?

48 HOURS: “What Ever Happened to Mary Day?” is produced by Chuck Stevenson. Lauren A. White is the field producer. Doug Longhini and Gayane Keshishyan are the development producers. Chelsea Narvaez is the broadcast associate. Michael Baluzy, Karen Brenner and Jon Baskin are the editors. Gail Zimmerman is the senior producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive story editor. Judy Tygard is the executive producer.

Join correspondent Maureen Maher for a live Q&A on 48 HOURS’ page Sunday, May 3 at 1:00 PM, ET to discuss this investigation.
