High Risk Community COVID-19 Exposure At Showtime Joe's

Michele Skalicky

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department is notifying the public of potential high-risk community exposures from at least four people who tested positive for COVID-19.

They worked at Showtime Joe’s, 2209 W. Sunshine St., over the course of several days, according to the health department, and both they and customers “were inconsistently” masked.

The COVID-19 positive employees worked on September 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12 from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Health department officials say anyone who was within six feet of a staff member for more than 15 minutes or had physical contact for any length of time on these dates should self-quarantine for 14 days from the latest date of contact.

According to the health department, there were no previous masking complaints against this establishment.

Face masks are required in public settings within Springfield city limits.  Patrons of restaurants and/or bars must wear a face mask while seated except when eating and/or drinking. Anyone serving customers in any capacity must also wear a face covering.
