Many online shops offer "buy now, pay later" installment services that target high school and college students. These services are quickly gaining in popularity allowing shoppers to purchase just about anything – from electronics to a pair of shoes – by agreeing to pay a series of smaller installments. Before signing up, consumers should research the option carefully so they can make informed purchasing decisions and avoid getting in over their heads.

COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in Cape Girardeau County continue to rise weekly. During the month of August, the total number of cases rose to over 11,000, and active cases rose into the hundreds. 

The Cape Girardeau County mask mandate was lifted on April 26th, 2021, however city buildings continue to require face coverings upon entry, as well as various local businesses. 

With the spread of the Delta variant, and schools returning to session, some Missouri schools have re-evaluated their COVID-19 protection plans, and even re-instated mask mandates. 

On August 31st, the Cape Girardeau School board met to address their new plan for the fall 2021 semester, establishing a mask mandate for all students, faculty, and staff at all Cape Girardeau Public Schools.
