With the recent changes to guidance for those who been infected with or exposed to COVID-19, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department has created an online tool to help determine what isolation and quarantine guidance an individual should follow.
The questionnaire is based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and can be found at health.springfieldmo.gov/quarantine. The new CDC guidance shortens the required isolation time and draws a distinction in quarantine guidance for those who have received a booster shot.
Guidance for those who test positive for COVID-19:
Guidance for those who are exposed to COVID-19:
Appointments are required for COVID-19 testing at the Springfield-Greene County Health Department and can now be made online at health.springfieldmo.gov/testing or by calling the COVID-19 Call Center at 417-874-1211. Individuals who book an appointment will receive a test at the Health Department Vaccination Clinic, located at 1425 E. Battlefield Road (old Toys R Us). The tests are administered via a throat swab and results will be made available within 24 – 72 hours.
In addition to testing, the Health Department also encourages individuals to get vaccinated and receive a booster dose. Booster doses provide additional protection, especially as we prepare for the Omicron variant and additional disease spread in our community. For vaccination opportunities, visit vaccine417.com or call the COVID-19 call center at 417-874-1211. Those receiving a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at the Health Department clinic are eligible to receive a $50 gift card while supplies last.
Media may contact the Health Department PIO Team by call or text at 417-380-2556 or email at [email protected].
