The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is notifying the public of potential community exposures from a COVID-19 positive individual.
Prior to being diagnosed, our case worked at the McDonald’s at 2811 N. Kansas Expy on the following days:
The individual was symptomatic while working and wore a face covering and gloves while interacting with customers in the lobby and drive-thru. Sneeze guards were also in place between the individual and customers.
Anyone who was at this location on these dates is at low risk for contracting COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms. There is no need to self-quarantine or isolate unless symptoms develop. The Health Department is making direct contact with employees who were in close contact with the individual.
This latest case is yet another reminder for all of us to interact with our environment carefully. If someone is sick or thinks they may be sick, they need to stay home.
A timeline of all known potential community exposures in the last 14 days is available here.
COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It spreads between people who are in close contact with one another.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
If symptoms do develop, seek medical attention.
If you are sick, you can use virtual care options to seek medical treatment without exposing others to illness. Links are available at health.springfieldmo.gov/coronavirus.
