Springfield-Greene County Health Department director, Clay Goddard, said it's clear to him that "we are currently in the teeth of the second wave of the (corona)virus."
Goddard told Springfield City Council Monday Greene County has had a reported 2,486 new COVID-19 cases in the first half of November.
"We've nearly reported in this last week what it took us two weeks to report in October," he said.
But. Greene County is doing better than other jurisdictions in Missouri, according to Goddard, and he's encouraged by the recent news about COVID-19 vaccines.
