Health Department announces potential COVID-19 exposures

novel-coronavirus

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is notifying the public of two potential exposures from a COVID-19 positive individual.

One of our recent positive cases visited the Walmart at 3315 S. Campbell Ave. on April 6 around 8:30 p.m.

Another confirmed case visited the Kum & Go at 777 E. Battlefield on April 7 around 3:30 p.m.

This is an important reminder that we should all be staying at home as much as possible. When we do go out for essential functions, we should be interacting with our environment as if the people around us are sick—or better yet, we should be operating during this time as if we might be sick.

Anyone who was at one of the locations disclosed on these dates are at low risk for contracting COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms. There is no need to self-quarantine or isolate unless symptoms develop.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, fever and shortness of breath. If symptoms do develop, seek medical attention. Contact your health care provider before you go to tell them about your symptoms and recent travel history.

If you are sick, you can use virtual care options to seek medical treatment without exposing others to illness. Links are available at health.springfieldmo.gov/coronavirus
