The number of cases of COVID-19 in Missouri increased by an average of 225 cases per day during the past week. Laclede County Health Department Administrator, Charla Baker, says Laclede County still has yet to record a positive case………

A majority of the new cases are being found in the St. Louis metro area, but Baker says now is not the time for us to let our guard down. We must remain vigilant, and continue to practice social distancing and proper handwashing and sanitizing techniques.
