Knox County Health Department website

Health departments in rural northeast Missouri are begging for cooperation and honesty when it comes to contact tracing. Knox County health officials say they’re getting incomplete information.  WGEM’s Frank Healy reports from Edina.



Health officials say they keep getting incomplete information.   Knox County health administrator Lori Moots-Clair tells Quincy affiliate WGEM that being honest is what keeps your loved ones safe.



She says that is what’s needed to slow the COVID-19 pandemic down. She’s also worried that COVID may be more widespread than the numbers imply, due to resistance to testing.
