Anyone in those locations is at low risk for contracting the virus that causes COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms. If symptoms develop, self-quarantine and contact your primary care provider.

Springfield Greene County Health Department director Clay Goddard is urging anyone in the community who feels ill to stay home and not risk spreading the virus. The community needs to practice social distancing, proper hand hygiene and wear a face covering when possible.
