COVID-19 Public Announcement

June 09, 2020

In March, Hermann Hospital identified a need for an information line people could reach to have their questions about COVID-19 answered.  At that time, wait times at the state hotline line could be over an hour.  

 Since then, our hotline has been answered 24/7, by two of our dedicated nurses (Megan Cook and Tiffany Davis), who have helped answer the questions of hundreds of members of our community, direct them to appropriate care and helped coordinate COVID-19 testing when appropriate.

 However, as additional state and county resources have become increasingly available and better organized, we have seen a large reduction in calls to our call line.  In addition, coordination of our testing has shifted to the clinic at Southwest Medical Associates.  Therefore, we will be suspending our local 24 hour COVID-19 call line effective 6/11/2020 at 7 am.

 To set up a Covid-19 test, or speak with a clinic nurse, call 573-486-2118 (Mon-Fri 8-5, Sat 8-noon).  Testing is by appointment at Southwest Medical Clinic, 1714 Wein Street.
