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.
