155 COVID-19 Patients In Springfield Hospitals Monday Morning


The number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Springfield continues to climb.  As of Monday morning, there were 155 in the city’s hospitals, according to the Springfield-Greene County Health Department dashboard, and 61 were in critical care.  Fifty-nine of those hospitalized were from Greene County.

The last time the number was that high was on January 18th when 163 were in the hospital with COVID-19 and 34 were in critical care.

The seven-day average of daily cases had risen to 91.86, according to the health department’s dashboard.  The threshold Springfield City Council and the health department used to move out of restrictions was fewer than 20 daily cases in a seven-day average.  Just 37.6 percent of Greene County residents 12 and older were fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
