(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. 

If you are sick, particularly with a fever and a cough, or shortness of breath, call your health care provider before visiting for guidance regarding symptoms and next steps, according to the health department.

Skies have started to cloud up late today after we saw sunshine for the first half of the day. Clouds will start to break apart again this afternoon with temperatures warming into the lower 50s. The majority of today will be dry, but there could be a few areas of light drizzle later this evening mainly to the south of the St. Joseph area. Temperatures will continue to warm on Saturday making a run for 60 under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will move into the area Saturday evening as a cold front moves through. That cold front could bring us a few areas of light rain once again, but most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of rain.. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday because of the cold front, but will quickly start to warm into the 50s by the beginning of next week.
