Administrator of the Laclede County Health Department, Charla Baker, is concerned about an upcoming event in Lebanon

The 5th annual Gospel Music Get-Together is scheduled to get underway at the Cowan Civic Center on July 29th and will continue through August 1st. That event is causing concern at the Laclede County Health Department. Health Department Administrator, Charla Baker, says they have been adamant about those concerns with organizers………

Baker says their concerns are two-fold. One is the demographic of the crowd that typically attends that event, which usually includes older residents many of whom have COVID-19 comorbidities. Another concern the Health Department has is bringing in hundreds or thousands of individuals who reside elsewhere, some in places where the level of infection is much greater, into our community.
