Springfield Mayor and Greene County Presiding Commissioner react to Governor's announcement

MEDIA STATEMENT

Springfield Mayor Ken McClure and Greene County Presiding Commissioner Bob Dixon express gratitude to Governor Mike Parson for extending his Stay-At-Home order for the State of Missouri. The Governor has worked with local and county governments throughout the crisis, recognizing that local conditions vary widely across the state. 

“As community spread of COVID-19 continues throughout our region, the aggressive actions we have taken, including following the Governor’s order and our more restrictive Springfield and Greene County orders, are working,” said McClure.

“Our prevention has undoubtedly saved many lives and allowed our hospitals time to scale up response resources and not be overwhelmed. In this regard, we are ahead of many communities who did not act fast enough. Some are relatively close and will still impact our region,” said Greene County Presiding Commissioner Bob Dixon.

Springfield-Greene County Health Director Clay Goddard reports six new confirmed COVID-19 cases today, an example he cites as “why we have to continue to stay the course for the immediate future.”

“As we begin the Recovery Phase soon, we will continue to work together and achieve the tremendous unified success so common in our community and region,” Dixon said.
