Greene County has reached the highest number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 since the pandemic began.
As of Monday, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department says there are 251 people hospitalized with the virus. 103 of those people are in critical care.
The previous record was December 1st, 2020, when 237 people were being treated for COVID-19 in local hospitals. 57 people were in critical care at that time.
Local health leaders have joined with other public health officials to expand the “Find A Vaccine” map to cover all of southwest Missouri.
The map allows people to input their home or work address to locate the nearest vaccination site.
Users may also filter by vaccine type and clinic setting and whether it’s a community event, healthcare clinic or pharmacy.
