CoxHealth Opens New Emergency Department Entrance For Anyone With COVID-19 Symptoms

There’s now a separate entrance at Cox South in Springfield for anyone with symptoms of COVID-19.

A large white tent has been erected along the drive-up area in front of the Emergency Department.  The alternate triage and treatment site is for patients who go to the ED with COVID-19 and other respiratory symptoms. 

CoxHealth officials say the new entrance is for patients with mild symptoms. 

Mercy Springfield opened a forward triage facility at its ER Monday for patients with symptoms of COVID-19.
