Festus City Covid-19 update, Chief Cremer still hospitalized

(Festus) Festus City Administrator Greg Camp returned to work on Tuesday after missing several days due to a positive case of Covid-19. Camp says he got hit pretty hard in the early going, and it certainly drained him of energy.

Camp also gave an update on Festus Fire Chief Kevin Cremer, who is currently at Mercy Jefferson battling Covid.

As a precaution, the Festus City Council named an interim Fire Chief to handle things during Chief Cremer’s absence at Monday night’s meeting. Camp says any of the current Captains would have been a good choice.

There are two other Festus City employees that are currently out with Covid-19.
