According to the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force, St. Louis has yet to see its peak of COVID-19 cases. With the likelihood of additional cases and possible deaths from this terrible virus, the City of St. Louis community must stay steadfast in its efforts to mitigate its spread. It is why the “Stay at Home” order is crucial now more than ever, as well as other protective methods like wearing a face mask when in public, and regularly washing your hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizer.
As of 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 15, 2020, there were nine pending COVID-19 test results approved by the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services, 181 persons being monitored, and 743 positive cases in the City of St. Louis.
