The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is alerting the public to some additional potential public exposure to COVID-19.

Before they were diagnosed, a person with COVID-19 who was infectious but not symptomatic and wearing a mask worked at the Walmart Supercenter, 3315 S. Campbell in Springfield, on Friday, June 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

They attended a baseball game on Friday, June 14, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Meador Park Field 5, 2500 S. Fremont in Springfield, without a mask on.

The Taney County Health Department said a person with COVID-19 visited several locations before being diagnosed.  Those are the Freddy's and Steak n Shake drive throughs on June 15 and 16 between 3 and 4 p.m.; Shell Station on Green Mountain Drive sometime on June 16; Walgreens on June 19 at 4:30 p.m. and Panera Pick Up June 20 between 3 and 4 p.m.  They wore a mask at every location.  The health department believes this 34th case to be community acquired.

Anyone at any of those location on those dates is at low risk for contracting COVID-19 but should monitor for symptoms.
