Missouri will use a self-attestation model that is in line with federal guidelines, so individuals will not be required to provide documentation of their health status.
Medical conditions and treatments that qualify individuals include, but are not limited to:
PFIZER BOOSTER DOSES: Missourians who received the Pfizer vaccine can receive a booster shot at least six months after their initial series based on CDC guidance:
The list of medical conditions categorized as high-risk by the CDC is available here. Missourians with an underlying medical condition are encouraged to speak with their healthcare provider about whether a booster shot is right for them.
Federal health experts are still reviewing data from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) and will decide when recipients may be eligible for a booster shot. Missouri providers will be ready to administer Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster shots when they are recommended.
Since the start of the pandemic, the Butler County Health Department has been working diligently to complete contact tracing on each individual who tests positive for the Coronavirus. Contact tracing, mandated by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, is how the Health Department learns who a positive case has been in close contact with as well as where they have been. With the reopening of the state, people are beginning to reenter places of business. This has made it nearly impossible to notify each individual who could have possibly been exposed. Due to this, we have created a list of possible exposure locations. The Health Department is working closely with each location to inform them of the possible exposure and provide them with CDC guidelines on how to properly clean / disinfect their establishment.
The timeline below provides general information about public exposures in the last 10 days. This list is provided to better inform the community and help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Anyone who was at these locations on these dates is at low risk for contracting COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms. There is no need to self-quarantine or isolate unless symptoms develop. If someone is sick or thinks they may be sick, they need to stay home.
For more information on cleaning and disinfecting guidelines, refer to the CDC website.
