Governor Parson Field Hospitals

(Florissant, MO.) As COVID-19 cases continue to increase across the state, the St. Louis area is getting extra hospital capacity courtesy of the National Guard.  Missouri Governor Parson says North St Louis County will get at least one field hospital with 100 beds available in what is now a hotel in Florissant.

Parson ruled out using the former Edward Jones Dome for now in Downtown St. Louis.  He says other smaller facilities like the one being setup in Florissant may become necessary in the weeks ahead.
