The Springfield-Greene County Health Department will host a media briefing at 1 p.m. today in the Training Room of the Public Safety Center, 330 W. Scott.
We ask that members of the media—one per outlet—arrive 10-15 minutes early for a health screening. Masks will be required to enter the briefing room and we ask everyone in attendance to practice physical distancing.
The briefing will discuss an increase in COVID-19 cases over the past week.
Media can utilize footage from a pool camera but will be spaced to maintain physical distancing. Reporters and the public can continue to tune in to the livestream on the City’s and Health Department’s Facebook pages or at https://cityview.springfieldmo.gov/livestream/.
For reporters who will not appear in person, questions can be directed via text message to Cora Scott at 417-380-3352.
For media requests, contact Cora Scott, Director of Public Information & Civic Engagement for the City of Springfield at 417-380-3352 or Kathryn Wall, Springfield-Greene County Health Department Administrator at (417) 380-2556 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
