The governor’s office, in conjunction with multiple state and federal agencies, scoured the state to find a place to convert into an emergency hospital for Covid-19 patients with little to no symptoms if state hospitals run out of room.

Sandy Karsten, the director of the Missouri Department of Public Safety, explains.

A hotel in Florissant was chosen.

Karsten explains a little more about staffing.

Governor Parson said during his daily news brief that he believes Missouri will be prepared with the amount of beds that are available.
