Greene County Over 300 COVID-19 Cases; Two Public Exposures Announced

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department has announced two more public exposures from newly diagnosed COVID-19 patients as the county’s total number of confirmed cases broke the 300 confirmed case barrier.

The county reported 11 new cases confirmed by diagnostic testing, which raised the county’s total confirmed cases to 307. (Adding in probable cases, the overall total is 329.)

The county has 109 active cases, with just over 21,000 county residents tested for the virus.

The latest public exposures are:

  • Wednesday, June 17: Visited Walmart Supercenter at 3520 W Sunshine from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. (infectious and symptomatic, not masked)
  • Saturday, June 27: Visited Wonders of Wildlife (aquarium side only) at 500 W Sunshine from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (infectious but not symptomatic, not masked)

Anyone in those locations is at low risk for contracting the virus that causes COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms. If you begin to show symptoms, contact your primary care provider.
