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 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.
