State ships PPE equipment, speeds up testing for health care workers

The state has shipped thousands of face masks, gloves, and other personal protective equipment to health care workers helping COVID-19 patients. Officials have ordered millions more units.

The state is also speeding up COVID-19 test results for Missouri health care workers. They have to be exposed to sick patients, and showing symptoms themselves.

There’s a 24-hour turnaround on these tests. Results from other tests can take more than a week.
