Here is an overview of the State of Kansas and Douglas County’s Phase One Reopening Plan:

Douglas County is following Governor Kelly’s phased-in approach to begin allowing some businesses to reopen once the Kansas stay-home order expires at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, May 3, with two exceptions. Douglas County will keep libraries and in-house services for restaurants closed through May 17.

Under the Governor’s plan and the Douglas County public health order, the following establishments are not allowed to open Monday, May 3:

  • Bars and nightclubs, excluding those already operating curbside and carryout service
  • Non-tribal casinos
  • Theaters, museums and other indoor leisure spaces such as trampoline parks and arcades
  • Fitness centers and gyms
  • Nail salons, barber shops, hair salons, tanning salons, tattoo parlors and other personal service businesses where close contact cannot be avoided
  • In-house services for restaurants (can continue offering takeout, delivery and drive-through services)
  • Libraries
