(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.) -- Lawmakers in Jefferson City are advising against visits to the state capitol building.

The Missouri House Chambers and Lounge have shuttered to the public out of caution after the state confirmed its first Coronavirus case.

A group of Senate and House leaders released a joint statement regarding precautions being taken.

Several public areas of the house chambers will be closed because there are areas difficult to disinfect on a daily basis

In addition to closing some public areas in the House that are “difficult to disinfect on a regular basis,” the lawmakers also said they are “encouraging guests who are not directly participating in the legislative business to refrain from visiting the Capitol at this time.”

Snow showers have left the area and we saw anywhere from 2-4 inches of snow. Surface temperatures for the most part remain above freezing so accumulations were mostly on elevated and grassy surfaces. Skies slowly cleared throughout the day with temperatures warming into the mid to upper 40s. Conditions look to dry out and slowly warm throughout the next few days. Rain chances will return mainly through the morning hours on Friday with temperatures back in the 60s. Temperatures will continue to warm through the weekend with highs back in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Temperatures will be close to 80s for the beginning of next week under mostly sunny skies.
