  1. Reopen Kansas Plan
  2. Kansas Stay at Home Order
  3. Douglas County Stay at Home Order

On April 30, 2020, Governor Laura Kelly announced a three (3) phase plan to reopen Kansas using milestones instead of specific dates. 

From the Governor’s website

"Progress will be measured by monitoring our testing rates, COVID-19 hospitalizations, ability to contact trace, and availability of personal protective equipment.

Here’s what you can do to help reach reopening milestones:

  • Follow your county’s restrictions. Not all counties may choose to open at the same time.
  • Stay home if you’re sick.
  • Wear masks in public settings.
  • Maximize physical distance (6 feet or more) in public settings.
  • Avoid socializing with large groups.
  • High-risk individuals should only leave the house for essential needs.
  • Minimize nonessential travel.
  • Check in (via phone/letter/text/email) with friends and family who are isolated.
  • Wash your hands frequently."
