KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Clay County officials said Friday that three people who were self-quarantined after traveling to China do not show any symptoms of COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus.

The Clay County Public Health Center said it has completed monitoring of the three residents. They had previously been considered at "medium risk" for the virus due to their travel history.

They were each self-quarantined at home for 14 days.

China has seen the largest number of COVID-19 cases globally, with more than 80,000 cases, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

As of Friday afternoon, no cases of coronavirus had been reported in either Kansas or Missouri.
