Missouri Southern Student, Faculty and Staff COVID-19 Dashboard
Efficient and reliable testing for COVID-19 is an important part of the risk mitigation strategy. Contact tracing remains a function of the local health departments. However, Missouri Southern will continue to assist with contact tracing and notification to members of the campus community who need to isolate as a result of a positive case or quarantine due to close contact.
The dashboard details the medically confirmed COVID-19 cases among faculty, staff and students in or around the Missouri Southern campus community (i.e., students living on campus or near campus, commuter students and employees working on campus). Positive cases are students that have tested through the Willcoxon Health Center and employees that have self-reported to Human Resources. Every effort is being made to keep as accurate counts as possible of those reported.
Feeling sick? Stay home. Faculty, staff and students are reminded to contact the Willcoxon Health Center (students and employees) and human resources (employees) if diagnosed with COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19, as this greatly enhances contact tracing and reducing the spread of the virus.
Students: Contact the Willcoxon Health Center (417-625-9323, firstname.lastname@example.org) and your teacher(s). Faculty/Staff: Contact the Willcoxon Health Center (417-625-9323, email@example.com) and Human Resources (417-625-9527, firstname.lastname@example.org) You can receive care through your primary care provider.

Isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease.
- Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
- Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
