KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Missouri Gov. Mike Parson will remain quarantined through Oct. 3.

His office announced Friday that Parson — who tested positive along with his wife, Teresa, on Wednesday — remains asymptomatic.

Teresa, who symptoms remain mild, according to the governor’s office, will remain in isolation through Sept. 28.

Her quarantine ends earlier “due to her symptom onset occurring prior to his positive test,” according to a release from Gov. Parson’s office.

Despite the governor being in isolation on Oct. 3, Teresa announced on social media Fridat that the third annual Parson Family Fall Festival at the Missouri's Governor's Mansion will continued that day as scheduled.

As it announced Thursday, the governor’s staff and security detail along with staff at the governor’s mansion have been tested. No results of those tests were announced.
