St. Louis County COVID-19 Update ~ June 9, 2021

St. Louis County COVID-19 Update
 
Vaccine Site Partnership with University of Missouri St. Louis
 
St. Louis County is opening a major new COVID-19 vaccination site in north St. Louis County, in close proximity to some of our most vulnerable neighborhoods. 
 
As announced by County Executive Dr. Sam Page this morning, DPH will begin vaccinations Friday in the Student Center at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. We are very pleased to partner with UMSL to  add yet another location for residents in North County to easily obtain a COVID vaccine.
 
DPH is offering both the Pfizer and the Johnson & Johnson vaccines at the site, which is on the third floor of the Millennium Student Center at 17 Arnold B. Grobman Drive, St. Louis, MO 63121. We are prepared to administer as many as 250 vaccinations per day on site. The clinic will operate through the end of July on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:30 to 6 p.m. and on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome, and appointments are available at stlcorona.com.
 
This location is is one of many holding vaccination events in North County as well as countywide. The County is working with area churches, businesses, non-profits and the St. Louis County Library to continue to expand vaccination offerings, making it ever more convenient to get vaccinated. All vaccination events are listed at stlcorona.com; most offer walk-up service.
 
“Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is the safest and quickest way to protect St. Louis County families and help our communities return to normal. These new sites are critical for the county to continue to expand vaccine access to every eligible resident,” Dr. Page said. “We are grateful to all of our neighbors who have gotten the COVID-19 vaccine, and we urge anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated to do so to protect themselves and their loved ones. If you have questions about the vaccine or how to access it, our incredible St. Louis County staff is available to help.”
 
UMSL Chancellor Kristin Sobolik said the new site would offer a convenient place for university students and staff as well as community residents to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
 
“The University of Missouri–St. Louis is committed to being a good community partner and supporting  the health and well-being of our neighbors. We are glad to be able to do that by partnering with the St. Louis County Department of Public Health to serve as a vaccination site,” Chancellor Kristin Sobolik said. “We encourage everyone in the UMSL community and our neighbors to get vaccinated.”
 
The new clinic is only the latest example of St. Louis County’s commitment to serving our most vulnerable areas when it comes to administering the COVID-19 vaccine. To date, that commitment has yielded strong returns.
 
On April 28, the state’s vaccination consultant reported that the 10 census tracts with the biggest vaccination gaps in the state were all located in St. Louis County. The vaccination gap is the difference between total population in a census tract compared to the number of people vaccinated.
 
In the most recent state report, only one of the Top 10 census tracts for vaccination gaps was in St. Louis County. The same report makes clear that the St. Louis region had the biggest increase in vaccinations in the entire state in recent weeks.

St. Louis County COVID-19 Update

Community Organizations Partner With County to Vaccinate Residents

The County continues to build partnerships in the community to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine. These partnerships are intended to reach into neighborhoods and gathering places so that residents can get their shots at the places they already visit.

Vaccines will be administered today from 2 to 6 p.m inside the Lewis and Clark Library meeting room at 9909 Lewis and Clark Boulevard in Moline Acres. This will be the first in a series of vaccination clinics offered at St. Louis County Library branches this summer. The event will include book giveaways and a visit from the St. Louis Metro Market, a nonprofit mobile farmers market.

As always, the COVID-19 vaccine is available at no cost. No identification or proof of residence is required.

The Department of Public Health is accepting applications from any organization that would like to hold a vaccine event. DPH will provide vaccines and staff, while the organization must provide a space and promote the event. For more information, go to stlcorona.com​ and click “Vaccination Partnerships".

COVID-19 Vaccines for Children and Teens
Although fewer children have been infected with COVID-19 compared to adults, children can:
  • Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19
  • Get sick from COVID-19
  • Spread COVID-19 to others.
CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. Getting your child or teen vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss. Please continue to practice personal protective measures. Additional information from the CDC can be found here.​

St. Louis County COVID-19 Update

Vaccination Event at St. Louis County Library

A book giveaway and a visit from a mobile fresh market will highlight a free vaccination event Wednesday afternoon at the Lewis & Clark branch of the St. Louis County Library in Moline Acres.

The vaccination opportunity, from 2 - 6 p.m. Wednesday at the branch at 9909 Lewis and Clark Blvd., is the first in a series to be offered at St. Louis County library branches over this spring and summer. The St. Louis County Department of Public Health will be staffing the event, along with members of North County Fire & Rescue and the library system.

All vaccinations are free and walk-ups are accepted. Participants may also make an appointment by visiting stlcorona.com and clicking on the "Vaccine Appointments" box.

The St. Louis Metro Market, a non-profit mobile farmers' market, will be on site from 2 - 4 p.m., and book giveaways will be conducted throughout the afternoon. 

The event is just one of many community-based vaccination clinics offered by DPH across the county. The neighborhood surrounding the Lewis & Clark branch has a vaccination rate much lower than the county average, so it is crucial that more opportunities become available to make vaccinations as convenient as possible for residents.

Members of the media who wish to cover the event are encouraged to contact Christopher Ave, DPH director of communications, at cave@stlouiscountymo.gov.

The ISPN & Wash U COVID-19 Impacts Project is seeking survey participants

​The ISPN & Washington University in St. Louis are teaming up on a project to understand and design collaborative initiatives regarding the impact of COVID-19 on immigrants and immigrant service providers in the St. Louis Region. There are two surveys: one geared toward service providers and the other for immigrant community members. The immigrant community member survey is available online in English, Spanish, Nepali, Arabic, & Mandarin. The survey is also available over the phone in additional languages at 314-935-3557. Click here​ for more information on the project and to take the surveys online.

Note: Should you have questions regarding the latest COVID-19 Guidelines, please contact the St. Louis County Department of Public Health at (314) 615-9700.

St. Louis County Library Partners with County Department of Public Health to offer Vaccine Events
 
St. Louis County Library and the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health are teaming up to offer vaccine events at library branches starting next week. Vaccines will be offered at no cost. Health insurance or proof of residency is not required. Additional information about the vaccination process is available at www.stlcorona.com.
 
“The library is a safe and trusted community resource,” said Kristen Sorth, director and CEO of the St. Louis County Library. “Throughout the pandemic we have worked hard to reduce barriers to essential services by using our branch parking lots to distribute drive-thru meals, diapers, period supplies, masks and COVID testing.” 
 
The first vaccine event in the partnership will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 26, at the Lewis & Clark Branch, located at 9909 Lewis-Clark Blvd. in Moline Acres. The event will feature book giveaways and a visit from the mobile produce vendor, MetroMarket, from 2 to 4 p.m. Vaccines will be administered inside the Lewis & Clark Branch meeting room.
 
The second vaccine event will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 2 during the grand opening of the new Eureka Hills Branch, located at 500 Workman Road in Eureka. Vaccines will be offered inside the Eureka Hills Branch meeting room.
 
“This exciting partnership with the library will provide wider access to the vaccine and help us eliminate the disparities we are seeing from ZIP code to ZIP code,” County Executive Dr. Sam Page said. “Getting more of our community vaccinated is critical to getting us through this pandemic.”
 
Spring Schmidt, deputy director of the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health, said, “The County Library has been a wonderful partner throughout this pandemic.  They have distributed masks, helped people have digital access to care, provided information and education to so many residents. Libraries are a community treasure and we are grateful for their collaboration with public health.”
 
Appointments can be made at www.stlcorona.com, but walk-ups will also be accepted at both events. Consent forms for ages 12-18 must be completed in order to receive a vaccine. Forms and other information are available at www.stlcorona.com.
 
Appointments will be made for the second dose at each event and follow-up clinics will be scheduled at both locations.
 
Additional vaccine events will be scheduled at other St. Louis County Library locations throughout the summer. Library branches are open with expanded hours, learn more at www.slcl.org/reopening

Crystal Lake Park COVID-19 Update


On May 13, 2021, the CDC issued guidelines in terms of mask usage and social distancing, “Those who are fully vaccinated, meaning that they have received all necessary doses and waited two weeks, may resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. People who are not fully vaccinated (those who are not at least two weeks post-completion of a vaccination series) remain at risk of contracting and transmitting the virus. To protect their own health and the health of people around them, it is vital that those not fully vaccinated continue to wear a face covering when in public around other people, practice social distancing, and maintain other CDC-recommended measures to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2,” (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html)

As per guidelines issued by St. Louis County on May 17, 2021, “In most cases, fully vaccinated people are no longer required by law to wear masks. However, people who haven’t been fully vaccinated still need to do so whenever they are in public or around people outside their household. Likewise, there are still situations where everyone needs a mask, like on buses and trains, in health care facilities, and anywhere so crowded that social distancing is impossible,” https://stlcorona.com/dr-pages-messages/covid-19-safe-operating-protocols/masking-faq/).

In keeping with the guidelines issued by the CDC and St. Louis County, at the May 17, 2021 Board of Alderpersons Special Meeting, the board lifted the mask and capacity requirements for fully vaccinated individuals at the playground, this also includes the splash pad.

Additionally, at the May 17, 2021 Board of Alderpersons Special Meeting, the board stated that any and all inquiries regarding the park, playground and splash pad are to be directed to Peg Crockett, Park Commissioner, (pegcrockett1@gmail.com or 314-809-3762).

St. Louis County COVID-19 Update

Mask Requirement Lifted For Fully Vaccinated Residents

Last week, after the CDC updated its guidance on mask-wearing for those who are fully vaccinated, St. Louis County and St. Louis City joined other communities across the country in changing their public health orders.

“Getting vaccinated means all activities are safer,” County Executive Dr. Sam Page said Monday morning. “Wherever you go, you are safer, as are all those around you.”

In most cases, fully vaccinated people are no longer required by law to wear masks. However, people who haven’t been fully vaccinated still need to do so whenever they are in public or around people outside their household. Likewise, there are still situations where everyone needs a mask, like on buses and trains, in health care facilities, and anywhere so crowded that social distancing is impossible.

Businesses still have the right to require all customers to wear masks. “If businesses want to require masks, we support that,” said Dr. Page. “The virus remains present in the community and is highly contagious.”

Someone is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. In St. Louis County, the majority of residents still have not been vaccinated. Statewide, two thirds have yet to been vaccinated.

Vaccines are available at each of the three County health clinics every weekday, free of charge. No appointment is necessary. Please click here for additional details on vaccinations sites and appointment opportunities. 

Further information can be found at https://stlcorona.com/dr-pages-messages/covid-19-safe-operating-protocols/masking-faq/

More than 1 million COVID-19 tests have now been administered in St. Louis County

County Executive Dr. Sam Page announced the milestone during his media briefing this morning. The 1 million mark demonstrates the commitment by our community to help fight this virus, he said. 

“Throughout this pandemic, the consistent questions have been: What can I do to help? What can I do to be safe? What can I do to keep my family from harm? Early on, it was getting tested,” said Dr. Page. “We set up testing sites in North County where the pandemic hit early and hit hard, and expanded testing throughout the county as access to testing supplies improved.” 

From the beginning, St. Louis County aggressively pursued testing supplies, knowing that testing was a way to measure the spread of COVID-19 and to help get people quarantined or connected to the medical assistance they needed. 

Testing continues to be important. Anyone who thinks they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or who has symptoms of the virus should get tested. The virus remains present in the community and is highly contagious. ​If you need a test, please click here to make an appointment today.
 

County Libraries Reopen

All Saint Louis County Library branches are open for in-person services. Customers may enter the building to browse and check out books, return books, use public computers, and use printers and copiers.

Seating may be limited and some staff services, like access to the History and Genealogy Department, are appointment-only. Masks are strongly encouraged.
Those who wish to take stronger precautions may still use the library’s curbside services. Visit slcl.org/reopening​ for more information.

County Prepares to Vaccinate Younger Teens

 
The Saint Louis County Department of Public Health is ready to begin vaccinations for 12- to 15-year-olds as soon as the CDC gives the go-ahead, County Executive Dr. Sam Page said in his Wednesday morning briefing. The CDC is expected to authorize the Pfizer vaccine for this age group within the next few days.

“We have worked closely with schools over the past year in offering guidance for in-classroom learning,” said Dr. Page. “We will continue working with schools through the vaccination process as students prepare to go back to class.”

Teens aged 16 and over can already receive the vaccine, and the process for their younger counterparts will be similar. A parent or guardian can bring their child in for the vaccination appointment and sign the consent form on-site, or the minor can bring the consent form with them. Copies of the form and a calendar of vaccination events can be found at stlcorona.com.

Pfizer is the primary vaccine used by the Department of Public Health, which has now administered more than 150,000 shots in total.

Prescription Drug Monitoring Set to Become Statewide Program

Saint Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page applauds the Missouri Legislature for passing SB 63, a bill creating a statewide Prescription Drug Monitoring Program. The PDMP is a system that tracks controlled substance prescriptions. The system allows health care providers to make more informed decisions before prescribing narcotics like opioid painkillers.

Missouri is currently the only state without a statewide PDMP. Since 2017, the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health has operated its own system. Since the County PDMP was put in place, 75 jurisdictions have passed legislation to participate in the program. It now covers 85 percent of Missouri’s population and 94 percent of healthcare providers.

“I strongly encourage Gov. Parson to sign this bill into law,” Dr. Page said Wednesday. “And I want to give a special thank you to state Senator Holly Rehder for working so hard on this legislation in Jefferson City. As a medical doctor, I understand how this program helps save lives.”

The Department of Public Health provides free naloxone (Narcan®) at its clinics and is now providing a by-mail option to ensure equitable access during the pandemic. DPH is also bringing naloxone to community outreach events. For more information about how to receive a naloxone kit, call 314-615-8233.
