(ST. JOSPEH, Mo.) -- St. Joseph city leaders have announced they will follow the lead of other communities and order all bars and restaurants in the city limits to temporarily close their doors due to the Coronavirus for 15 days.

Businesses will be reqiured to shut down Wednesday night just after midnight (12:01 a.m.).

Mayor Bill McMurray said drive-thru, curbside and delivery services will not be affected.

McMurray said that the decision was made following a meeting with city leaders and the governor, who gave a statewide update on the response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Several other states and cities, including Kansas City, have enacted similar restrictions.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
