County had no COVID-19 cases from volleyball camp, 33 total cases from Great Circle outbreak

    The Phelps/Maries Health Department has announced there were no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Phelps and Maries counties related to the Licking Volleyball Camp exposure in Rolla July 16-18.  The event is being declared an outbreak due to the number of cases and jurisdictions involved initially, after a St. Clair volleyball player was confirmed positive with COVID-19, causing the St. James and Rolla School Districts to cancel the final week this summer’s Licking Basketball Shootout.
