The Johnson County COVID-19 Recovery Planning Task Force was created to put together a recommended plan for the Board of County Commissioners on a phased approach to reopening the Johnson County economy. The Recovery Planning Task Force efforts balanced how to keep the workforce safe and healthy, while making recommendations on how businesses could reopen. The Recovery Planning Task Force met on April 22, April 24, April 27, and April 28, and finalized its plan on April 28.
After considering the task force recommendations, the board voted to table the the plan and follow the phases of Governor Laura Kelly’s Reopening Kansas plan.
