Commissioners Further Ease Local Health Order Restrictions

(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – During its regular meeting today, Commissioners voted to amend the Local Health Order to allow restaurants, not serving alcohol, to remain open to in-person dining without any limitations on hours of operation.  

All other provisions within the Minns order will remain. The order requires people must still be masked and maintain 6 feet of social distancing. Businesses and organizations are responsible for ensuring that individuals comply with the order’s mask-wearing, mass gathering, percentage of fire code capacity limitations, and social distancing requirements. Businesses are expected to make efforts to comply with fire code capacity limitations included in this order.

The order will be in effect from 12:01 a.m., February 7 through 11:59 p.m., March 20.
