City's Response During Coronavirus

As Springfield’s largest public service organization, we know our citizens count on us to provide essential services every day. We want to assure you that the City of Springfield will meet our public’s service expectations as we maneuver through the dynamic challenges of COVID-19, commonly referred to as the coronavirus. We take our role in helping to protect the health of our community very seriously. 

We know this is a stressful time. Life as we know it has been disrupted in myriad ways.

We are fortunate to have experts at the Springfield-Greene County Health Department and other public and private service agencies to chart our path forward as a community. We are doing what we do best: to collaborate and take preventative action.
