JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri National Guard is performing medical screenings at state government facilities and Missouri National Guard Headquarters on April 21, 2020 at the request of SEMA.
Guardsmen have been mobilized to take over the medical screenings that were being performed by SEMA personnel. SEMA initially set up mobile screening stations outside military and government buildings to help identify personnel that could possibly be infected with COVID-19 and help stop the spread of the disease.
“The Missouri National Guard works hand in hand with SEMA,” said the Assistant Adjutant General of Missouri, Brig. Gen Sharon Martin. “With the Guard taking over this duty, it frees up more SEMA personnel to assist the state in our fight against COVID-19.”
“The Missouri National Guard is fully integrated with state and national partners, and is focused on the health and well-being of our citizens, our service members and their families,” said The Adjutant General of Missouri, Brig. Gen Levon Cumpton.
