Franklin County, Missouri –The Franklin County Health Department can confirm four residents of Franklin County have tested positive for Covid-19. Through our partnership with other local public health agencies and communicable disease investigations, we are identifying additional confirmed cases that do not reside in Franklin County, but work in our community.
When feasible to identify close personal contacts to a case and provide direct notification, we will do so. At times, we may not be able to distinguish who is a close personal contact and who is not for privacy reasons. When those situations arise, we will provide notification through a press release.
Out of an abundance of caution the health department is reaching out to anyone who visited the facilities listed below and ask that you self-monitor by taking your temperature twice a day and remain alert for symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat). The self-monitoring period should last fourteen days since your last contact to the identified location. If you develop a fever or respiratory symptoms during the self-monitoring period, please contact your medical provider by phone or contact the Department of Health and Senior Services hotline at (877) 435-8411 or Mercy hotline at (314) 251-0500.
