As residents return from spring break trips and other travel, it is the advice of the Springfield-Greene County Health Department that they self-quarantine for 14 days.

During that time, travelers returning from outside our region are advised to stay home, avoid contact with others, and monitor for symptoms. If a traveler were to become symptomatic, they are encouraged to contact their health care provider.

This action is being recommended because of the large number of travelers who will be returning to the area. This is especially concerning when people have been to destinations that included large crowd activities.
