If you’ve had to make a necessary trip to one of the businesses in Lebanon this week, you’ve noticed that each location that remains open has a maximum occupancy sign posted on the front door. The Lebanon City Code department posted those limits on Monday. Laclede County Health Department Administrator, Charla Baker, says they met with city officials on Sunday to discuss the plan………

Baker says it has gotten easier to get tested for COVID-19 in Laclede County………..

Baker says department representatives went out in the community on Tuesday to assess whether a majority of citizens are staying home unless it is absolutely necessary to be out. Baker says the effort has gotten better, but there is still work to do.

So far the state of Missouri reports 52 deaths, blamed on the virus.

Laclede County has tested 103 people for the virus with 90 negatives, 0 Positive and 13 tests pending results.
