COVID-19 Guidance
Dated: April 1, 2020

This morning I had a conference call with all the Mayor’s in St Charles County and officials from
St Charles County. Our County Executive has put into place numerous Executive Orders which need to be followed.

Our concerns are all the same as the COVID-19 ramps up in our County.
It is of upmost importance that we as residents of St Paul follow the orders of our leaders as we progress through these trying times:

  • Shelter in place if it is at all possible
  • Maintain social distancing of at least 6 ft unless with immediate family
  • Wash your hands often especially after handling items brought in the home from the outside
  • Watch out for the elderly and most vulnerable during this time.

It is very easy to shrug this off and go on with our lives as normal, but this is very serious to
many and we must be aware of our travel, who we come in contact with, and how we interact
with each other.

If you have questions or concerns please call the County COVID-19 hotline at 636 949 1899
from 8am until 8pm daily or for County updates go to: https://www.sccmo.org/2105/COVID-19

Stay healthy and take care of one another!

The Founding of St. Paul

This area was originally called White’s Prairie for Captain James White of Ohio who was the first permanent settler upon it. A large portion of the area now called St. Paul was owned by a prominent gentleman, Wm. C. Lindsay, settled here from Kentucky in 1829…

Vernon Bauer

Mayor of St. Paul, MO

I have had the privilege of being your a Mayor a second time since 2011. I served prior from 1991 to 1999 before taking some time away for family.

For those newer to the City, I was born and raised here and have lived in St. Paul for 51 of my 61 years of life. I have a beautiful, supportive wife and two grown children who have given me four grandchildren. My wife Julie is retired Air Force after 27 years of service and now works for the State of Missouri. My kids are both educators. My grand-kids make me smile all the time!

I am thankful for your support and look forward to serving you both now and in the future.
