The Laclede County Health Department was notified on Wednesday that 11 more individuals have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, and one person has a probable case. Laclede County Health Department Administrator, Charla Baker, says some of the new cases attended the Lebanon graduation ceremony in late June………..

Baker urges residents who go out in public to treat any person you encounter as a potential exposure risk. Baker says residents need to protect themselves, and others, by wearing a mask in a public environment and to wash your hands frequently. Baker says science proves that masks do help prevent transmission of COVID-19.
