(MARYVILLE, Mo.) The Nodaway County Health Department announced Monday a third case of coronavirus. 

The individual is a woman between 30-39 years of age and is a resident of Nodaway County. The woman is a household contact positive case and is isolated at home. 

If you have not been contacted by a county or state health official, you are not considered a close contact with the individual and not at an increased risk for the virus, according to a statement from the Nodaway County Health Department.

The health department urges the public to stay home, to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people, to maintain six feet of separation for social distancing, to limit in-person interactions and to practice good handwashing and hygiene.

Residents should avoid touching your face, clean phones, devices and contact surfaces frequently.
