Gov. Parson says state is ready for potential coronavirus outbreak

(MissouriNet) Governor Parson says the Show-Me State is well-prepared, if a coronavirus outbreak were to happen here.

The governor addressed the issue Tuesday in Jefferson City, saying his greatest responsibility is keeping all Missourians healthy and safe.

“I want to assure you that we’re doing all we can to meet these needs and help every community prepare for a potential coronavirus outbreak,” said Parson.

While there have been no confirmed cases in Missouri, the state Department of Health and Senior Services says about one hundred people have been self-monitoring. DHSS has had fewer than 15 people under investigation, which includes testing.
