On March 28, Governor Laura Kelly issued a stay at home order for all of Kansas. Executive Order No. 20-16 goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. on March 30 and supersedes Johnson County’s stay at home order that went into effect March 24. Currently the governor’s order is set to expire on April 19, and if that remains the case, the county’s order, which when established was set to expire at 12:01 a.m. on April 23, would go back into effect.
The state is working on FAQs to provide more clarity on its order, and we will post a link to them as soon as they are made available. Questions on the state’s stay at home order can be emailed to KEFF@ks.gov.
In response to numerous requests for reconsideration that golf course operations be considered essential recreation (like parks), we are issuing these requirements to follow and open golf operations. This has been reviewed and approved by our legal department and our public health officer. These requirements were developed jointly with area parks departments to provide consistency in the region.
