COVID cases on the rise in St. Louis County
St. Louis County is seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases. The rolling seven-day average is currently 213 new cases per day. St. Louis County is in the CDC’s high category for COVID transmission levels. The South County area of our region has had the highest number of cases per 100,000 people with 376 cases in the past 7 days. While nearly all areas of our region have seen an increase in COVID cases, the Central and Outer North areas have had the highest percent change in the past week. To view additional COVID data visit our COVID dashboard.
Given this recent trend as well as the rapid increase of flu cases in our region, DPH continues to strongly recommend that residents use the tools available to slow the spread of respiratory viruses: get up to date on vaccines, including boosters and flu shots; wear masks in crowded public indoor places; wash hands regularly; and isolate and get tested if you experience any symptoms of COVID-19. If you feel sick, please stay home and get tested. If you use an at-home test, you can report a positive result online here.
COVID-19 vaccinations are offered weekdays at the John C. Murphy Health Center in Berkeley, the South County Health Center in Sunset Hills and the North Central Community Health Center in Jennings from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Flu shots are also available at the three health centers from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. No appointments are necessary. Free testing for COVID-19, flu and RSV is available at John C. Murphy Health Center on Tuesdays and South County Health Center on Thursdays. Testing is also available with your primary care provider or with at-home tests.
