Live Updates: Coronavirus in the Ozarks
KSMU is dedicated to broadcasting critically important information as our community experiences the COVID-19 pandemic. Below, you'll find our ongoing coverage. But first, these local resources:
If you are sick in the Ozarks region and suspect you may have COVID-19, call your doctor or health care provider first. Use "telemedicine," also known as Virtual Visits, to seek medical treatment so you don't expose others to illness. Here's a link to CoxHealth Virtual Visits and here's the link to virtual visits through MyMercy.
