June 27, 2020 - Health Department announces potential COVID-19 community exposures

Public Exposure Notice

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

Prior to being diagnosed, two cases from another jurisdiction went to the following locations:

  • Thursday, June 18: Visited Sam’s Club at 745 W El Camino Alto St. around 10:15 a.m. (infectious and symptomatic, not masked)
  • Saturday, June 20: Visited The Roost Bar & Grill at 2025 W Sunshine St #104 at 3:50 p.m. for about an hour and a half (infectious and symptomatic, not masked)
  • Saturday, June 20: Visited Sam’s Club at 3660 E Sunshine St. from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. (infectious and symptomatic, not masked)
  • Sunday, June 21: Visited Sam’s Club at 3660 E Sunshine St. from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. (infectious but not symptomatic, not masked)
  • Tuesday, June 23: Visited Walmart Supercenter at 1150 US-60 E in Republic from 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (infectious and symptomatic, not masked)
  • Tuesday, June 23: Visited So Tan at 1037 E Township St Ste 105 in Republic around 6 p.m. (infectious and symptomatic, not masked)

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

These latest cases are yet another reminder for all of us to interact with our environment carefully. When we go out in public, we need to practice physical distancing and wear a mask whenever possible. If someone is sick or thinks they may be sick, they need to stay home.

A timeline of all known potential community exposures in the last 14 days is available here.

COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It spreads between people who are in close contact with one another.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If symptoms do develop, seek medical attention.

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.
