May 19 update: Kansas Governor moves state to modified Phase 2

Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly issued Executive Order 20-34 to move the state into a modified Phase 2 of the "Ad Astra: A Plan to Reopen Kansas" beginning Friday, May 22. 

In Spring Hill, this means all City playgrounds will open. If you plan to use our playgrounds, please keep your distance of at least six feet; wash your hands after use and please do not visit our playgrounds if you are sick or have been sick within the last 14 days. At this time, City facilities remain closed to the public.

Key changes to Phase 2:

  • Mass gatherings of more than 15 individuals will be prohibited;
  • All businesses and activities slated to open during Phase 2 will be allowed, with the exception of bars, night clubs and swimming pools. These will be moved to Phase 3;
  • Businesses and activities that will be allowed to open in Phase 2 include:
  • Recreational organized sports facilities, tournaments and practices will be allowed to begin on Friday, May 22, and must adhere to social distancing requirements and follow Parks and Recs guidelines, which can be found on covid.ks.gov;
  • Community Centers will be allowed to open, except for indoor and outdoor swimming pools;
  • Indoor leisure spaces such as arcades, trampoline parks, theaters, museums and bowling allies will be allowed to open on May 22;
  • State-owned-and-operated casinos will be allowed to open once their re-opening plan has been approved by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment;
  • In-person group exercise classes will be allowed to begin with groups of no more than 15 at a time. Locker rooms remain closed except for restroom facilities;
  • Everything opened in Phase 1 and Phase 1.5 remains open pursuant to the restrictions outlined in Executive Order 20-34.
  • Phase 2 will last until Sunday, June 7, assuming the current trends continue. Phase 3 is expected to begin on Monday, June 8, with mass gatherings of more than 45 individuals prohibited.

Under Phase 2, the following, unless they are repurposed for use in an essential function under the Kansas Essential Function Framework, shall remain closed to the public:

  • Bars and night clubs, excluding curbside and carryout services;
  • Outdoor and indoor large entertainment venues with capacity of 2,000 or more;
  • Fairs, festivals, carnivals, parades;
  • Swimming pools (other than backyard pools);
  • Summer camps (with the exception of licensed childcare facilities).
