May 27 update: Johnson + Miami Counties as well as City to recommend State plan

Coronavirus update square

Johnson County won’t impose additional limits, strongly recommends adherence to Ad Astra Plan

On May 26, Kansas Governor Laura Kelly vetoed House Bill 2054 passed by the Kansas legislature that would have weakened the executive branch’s emergency power during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The state had been in Phase 2 of the Governor’s plan to reopen, but Kelly said going forward, she’ll offer her Ad Astra plan only as guidance to county health officials, who can impose health, business and mass gathering limits.

Johnson County Government will not impose additional limits, based on current conditions. Johnson County Local Health Officer Dr. Joseph LeMaster and Johnson County Department of Health and Environment director Dr. Sanmi Areola both strongly recommend that Johnson County residents and businesses continue to adhere to the phases and guidance in the state’s Ad Astra plan. Read the full Johnson County release. 

A Declaration of a State of Local Disaster Emergency for Miami County, Kansas

Today, the Miami County Commissioners followed the state’s lead and shifted toward an approach of recommendations versus requirements. Miami County encourages everyone to follow the guidance of CDC, federal, state and local health officials and private medical providers. This declaration is supplemental to and does not limit or modify any orders, directives, management or control of the Coronavirus pandemic or other public health matters issued by the Miami County Public Health Officer. Read the full Miami County release.
