Watch for the following signs and symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing/shortness of breath, muscle aches/headache, abdominal discomfort, vomiting, diarrhea, and loss of sense of taste or smell. If you feel you need to be tested call your doctor and let them know of your possible exposure. If you do have signs or symptoms, stay home, self isolate until you can be tested, stay home until you know the results of your test.
If you were in these locations, you may have been exposed: -----
We would hope you would care enough about others (family, friends, neighbors) in your community to keep them safe and well. Between protests, riots, opening up the State, parties, shows, graduations, car shows, camps, church, other gatherings, etc. we will be seeing increases in the State. It is up to each individual to do what is necessary to be safe and prevent further spread of this disease. PLEASE, do your part! We don't ask you to give up your freedoms. We ask you to volunteer to care about the rest of the community, your neighbors, friends and family to keep others healthy. THANK YOU for doing your part!

Social Distancing - no crowds, avoid get-togethers, travel only for necessities (food, water, medication, diapers, etc.)
Stay home if sick - fever, cough. If Shortness of breath, call your doctor or the hospital before traveling to them. When traveling to them with symptoms wear a mask.
Wash Hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds, rinse well, dry. Avoid touching your face.
Testing: The St. Clair County Health Center does not do testing for COVID-19. We do not have kits to test. If you are having symptoms of fever over 100.4 F, cough and difficulty breathing, you need to call your doctor. Your doctor will determine if you should be tested. At this time, the Federal Government is saying testing should be confined to hospital patients, to conserve the testing to those needing testing the most.
As Medical Director for the St. Clair County Health Center, I recommend a gradual return to non-essential activities and businesses as directed by the Governor of Missouri’s “Show Me Strong Recovery” plan beginning Monday, May 4th,2020 through May 31st, 2020. As the virus that is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic remains among us, we should continue to minimize the risk of spreading infection by social distancing, personal hygiene and limiting physical contact with others. I recommend following the Governor’s guidelines to reopening St. Clair County, and the State of Missouri.
