Mass Mask Distribution to County Schools

The Department of Public Health has been ordering community disposable masks to help support our efforts and protect community members. The goal of this specific initiative will be to partner with schools districts who are still working to provide learning and food services to their students. In effort to support essential workers distributing food this will provide additional safety to the staff and volunteers engaged in this effort. St. Louis County Department of Public Health’s relationship with school districts is highly valued and centered on collaboration. The distribution of this PPE to these organizations across St. Louis County allows further engagement with community members and to meet the imperative needs of supporting and keeping our citizens safe.

Dignified Transfer Center

The Dignified Transfer Center is currently accommodating 2 decedents. 52 additional individuals have been through the center and transported to a crematorium or funeral home, at the request of family. To date, 53 individuals have entered the Dignified Transfer Center.
