This afternoon, on Wednesday, April 29, the Board of County Commissioners held a special meeting on COVID-19. Johnson County Public Health Officer Dr. Joseph LeMaster discussed his plan that if Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly’s statewide stay-at-home order expires on May 3, he would issue a public health order to extend that order through May 10 in Johnson County. He will present this order to the BOCC tomorrow sitting as the Board of Public Health.
Assistant County Manager Joe Connor presented the Johnson County COVID-19 Recovery Planning Task Force recommendations to the board. This item is scheduled to be discussed Friday, May 1, at a special BOCC meeting. The recovery recommendations may need to be adjusted based on the governor’s announcement at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday. The board will solidify plans for its special meeting at its regular business session scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 30.
