8/4: This is a terrific presentation by Drs Rachel Orscheln and Jason Newland, Infectious Disease Specialists at St. Louis Children’s Hospital “Helping parents navigate back to school.” This should help inform parents, teachers, and school officials.
8/4: Bad news good news. 1) graph reflects the increasing Covid prevalence in SW Mo counties in the past ten days. About 6 counties have doubled. 2) Graph reflects recent Greene county rolling 7 day positives which is decreasing.
