As Greene County Cases Rise To 6, Health Officials Retrace Steps Of The Infected

Health Department

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department has announced the fifth and sixth confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Greene County.

The health department said on Thursday morning it's notifying people who have had close contact with the patients and who should be in quarantine.  

The fifth case is a household contact of an earlier confirmed case in the county, according to health officials. And the sixth case had a domestic travel history to an impacted area. Both had been voluntarily self-quarantining.

Also, the health department is updating the timeline of potential COVID-19 exposure to reflect that international travelers with the virus visited Lamberts Café in Ozark, where they had dinner on Thursday, March 5.  For a list of other locations visited, click here.

People who were at these locations on these dates are at low risk for contracting COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms, officials said.
