Health Department announces potential COVID-19 exposures


The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is notifying the public of three potential exposures from a COVID-19 positive individual.

One of our recent positive cases visited the Walgreens at 2640 E. Sunshine St. on March 29 around 7:30 p.m.

The patient also went to Target around 5:45 p.m. on March 30, and the Phillips 66 gas station near Sunshine and Glenstone on April 1 at 10:30 a.m.

This is an important reminder that we should all be staying at home as much as possible. When we do go out for essential functions, we should be interacting with our environment as if the people around us are sick—or better yet, we should be operating during this time as if we might be sick.

Anyone who was at one of the locations disclosed on these dates are at low risk for contracting COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms. There is no need to self-quarantine or isolate unless symptoms develop.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, fever and shortness of breath. If symptoms do develop, seek medical attention. Contact your health care provider before you go to tell them about your symptoms and recent travel history.

If you are sick, you can use virtual care options to seek medical treatment without exposing others to illness. Links are available at
