APRIL 3, 2020

Lincoln County, MO- Today the Lincoln County Health Department received confirmation from another health department of a positive COVID-19 case in an individual who works at Walmart in Troy, MO.

The Lincoln County Health Department was alerted of this possible case in a Walmart employee during the evening of April 2, and immediately began working to verify this information. Since receiving confirmation, we have been working with Walmart and the other health department to identify and inform all close contacts of this individual as well as determine any potential risk to the public.

If you visited the Walmart Pharmacy in Troy, MO on the following dates, we ask that you monitor your health and watch for symptoms.
• Thursday March 26th
• Friday March 27th
• Saturday March 28th
• Sunday March 29th

If you have COVID-19 symptoms such as dry cough and fever, please isolate yourself from others and call your healthcare provider.

We know many people in our community are very concerned to learn about this exposure, or even possible exposure, to COVID-19, but it is very important that the public not panic. There are many factors to consider regarding risk, and there are ways to help minimize that risk.

The more time that someone spends interacting with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, the more likely a transmission. In every instance, maintaining a distance of 6 feet from other people is extremely important, especially if those interactions are longer.

Please understand that this virus is already spreading in our community, possibly even from individuals who have no symptoms.

All involved parties will work diligently to identify as many individuals as possible who may have been close contacts.

SPECIAL NEEDS TRACKING AND AWARENESS RESPONSE SYSTEM

S.T.A.R.S

The ambulance district has joined several others in the St. Louis area that have started a new program called S.T.A.R.S. — Special Need Tracking and Awareness Response System.

The program is for special needs patents especially under the age of 18 and allows the district to be aware of any medical conditions it may encounter when responding to an emergency call.

The S.T.A.R.S. program was founded a few years ago by Shelby Cox, EMS liaison for Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center, and Tricia Casey, a paramedic with Rock Township Ambulance District. Once our district attended a meeting and learned more about the program, our administrators and paramedics agreed it would be beneficial to local families.

To learn more information about the S.T.A.R.S. Program, contact Battalion Chief Janet Norton, Lincoln County Ambulance District STARS Coordinator, at 636-528-8488  ext. 306 or stars@lcad.net or fill out the form below and we will contact you.
