On March 21, the CORE 4 partners of Jackson County, Missouri, Johnson County, Kansas; the City of Kansas City, Missouri, and the Kansas City, Kansas, Unified Government, based on the urgency of the COVID-19 public health emergency and the imminent rapid progression of the pandemic in our area, announce that beginning Tuesday, March 24, residents will be directed to stay at home except for essential needs. This includes all of Spring Hill in both Johnson and Miami Counties.
All jurisdictions will issue orders that will stay in effect for 30 days from the effective date of March 24, with consideration after 30 days of whether to prolong these orders beyond that date, based on public health and critical care metrics available at that time.
Examples of essential businesses and services that will remain open during this time period include critical government services, infrastructure projects, childcare, healthcare, grocery stores, pharmacies, and delivery/carry-out/drive-through services from restaurants.
