Third Case of COVID-19 Confirmed in Greene County

A third case of COVID-19 has been confirmed in Greene County.

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department said the patient is someone who contracted the disease during domestic travel. The department is releasing no other information about the patient.

The department is currently working with the patient to get a list of people with whom they’ve come into contact, and are contacting those people.

As of Saturday, the state public health laboratory is no longer required to send tests to the CDC for confirmation, so the results are now considered definitive rather than “presumptive positives.”

The health department continues to update information on their website.
