On Thursday, July 2, Governor Laura Kelly issued Executive Order #20-52 requiring that most Kansans must wear a mask while in public spaces, and in outdoor spaces where individuals are unable to maintain physical distancing of six feet. That same day, the Board of County Commissioners voted in support of that mandate.
If you are seeking enforcement of the Governor's mask order, contact the consumer fraud hotline at the District Attorney's Office, 913-715-3003. DO NOT CALL 911.
The Governor’s Executive Order #20-52, requiring masks, is currently in place until Sept. 15. Pursuant to House Bill 2016, the duration of this executive order would only change if the order is rescinded by the Governor, the order is revoked by concurrent resolution of the Kansas Legislature, or the state of disaster emergency (currently set to terminate on Sept.15) is extended in time by the Kansas Legislature.
