Turner Report: Department of Health and Senior Services reports that Missouri stands at 8,916 coronavirus cases, an increase of 162 cases over the previous day. Nineteen deaths were added to the state's total bringing the toll to 377.

KCTV5: Confirmed coronavirus cases in Kansas rose by 213, up to 5,458 total, though the actual number is thought to be higher because of limited testing and because people can be infected without showing symptoms. Reported COVID-19-related deaths increased by one to 137.
