April 20, 2020 Callaway County COVID-19 Update

The Callaway County Health Department received one new positive COVID-19 case this past weekend. There are currently 20 cases, with 15 recovered, four active and one death.
There have been questions regarding COIVD-19 testing. Below is a list of locations that are conducting tests and reporting results to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. DHSS then contacts the county of the individual’s home address. If you feel you may need a COVID-19 test, according to DHSS’s website, “please call the site you wish to visit before visiting the hospital or testing location to determine testing eligibility.” If you don’t meet the guidelines, you will not be tested according to the DHSS website.
