Kansas announced Thursday that three more residents have the new coronavirus, bringing the state’s confirmed tally of COVID-19 cases to four.
The three men, ages 35 to 65, all attended a conference in Florida in February, but didn’t show symptoms until they returned to Kansas, said Mary Beverly, interim director of the Johnson County Health Department. The men, who all live in Johnson County, are not hospitalized and are not seriously ill, she said.
The state’s first case — a woman under 50 — also was reported in Johnson County earlier this month. Johnson County is the state’s most populous county.
