County Executive Dr. Sam Page to Hold Media Briefing on COVID-19

 

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (July 28, 2020) - County Executive Dr. Sam Page will hold a media briefing at 3 p.m. today.

Dr. Page will discuss the status of testing in the county including increasing the supply of tests, expanding access to testing throughout the county, ensuring timely results to patients and improving reporting time for test administrators.

“While there is now greater access to testing, it has resulted in a backlog at labs, making it more difficult to get results back to those who are waiting to find out if they have COVID-19,” Dr. Page said. “Parents and superintendents need to see the virus trends now as they make school decisions for the fall and we need the results back quickly so that all our residents can continue moving about safely in the community.”

Tuesday, July 28, 2020, 3 p.m.

John C. Murphy Health Center

6121 North Hanley Road, Berkeley, MO 63134

For those unable to attend, the media briefing will be streamed on County Executive Page’s Facebook page.
