COVID-19 Testing Reported to Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, as of 8:45 p.m. CT, March 22

As commercial testing capacities increase, the coordination of patient and associated contact investigations is paramount to preventing and mitigating the spread of the virus. While performing public health priority activities, including notifying the patient, raising awareness among our communities is valuable. We will provide data as it is available, verified and pertinent.

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services reports COVID-19 cases in Missouri reached 106 Sunday. However, this number does not include St Louis County's latest number of 55 cases. With the county's numbers, Missouri has at least 137 COVID-19 cases, said KMOV news. Officials with the state said St. Louis County tests done at commercial labs take longer to process and make the state's database.
