SSM Health, the St. Louis-based owner of St. Mary's Hospital in Jefferson City, is now offering free "virtual visits" for people who are concerned they may have symptoms from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Anyone who lives in Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma or Wisconsin is eligible for the free evaluation. It may be accessed at ssmhealth.com/covid19.

The virtual visit begins with an online assessment of each patient's potential exposure and their symptoms. The patient is then connected with an SSM Health Medical Group provider for evaluation and care, as appropriate. If testing is recommended, patients are directed to the nearest testing facility.

St. Mary's Hospital in Jefferson City is in the process of setting up a testing site. It is expected to be open by the end of the week.
