SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Governor Mike Parson says the state will probably fulfill Springfield leader’s request for funding for an alternate care site.

According to the Springfield News-Leader, the alternate care site is to help prevent Springfield hospitals from becoming overrun with COVID-19 patients.

CoxHealth CEO Steve Edwards tweeted the state is considering their request but says time is of the essence.

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department says there are currently 228 people in Greene County hospitals because of COVIDs-19.
