Stay-at-home order rescinded

On April 30, Kansas Governor Laura Kelly issued Execute Order 20-29 defining her plan for re-opening the state following a state-wide stay-at-home order put into place under Executive Order 20-16 dated March 28, 2020. This order allows local authorities to initiate tighter restrictions than those listed in E.O. 20-29, but not looser restrictions.

In order to make the phasing process easier for Lincoln County residents to understand, and without the legal language used in Executive Orders, Public Health Officer LaDonna Reinert has provided the following which defines the governor’s order as it relates to the county.

Governor’s order

General Provisions: The previous statewide Stay-at-Home and mass gatherings orders are lifted and mass gatherings of more than 10 individuals are prohibited. Mass gatherings are defined as instances in which individuals are in one location and are unable to maintain six feet of distance between individuals (not including individuals who reside together) with only infrequent or incidental moments of closer proximity. Industries or functions that are already in operation pursuant to Kansas Essential Functions Framework (KEFF) may continue to function while, if possible, avoiding gatherings of more than 10 individuals where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Any local government that decides to impose equal or more stringent restrictions during this phase is permitted to do so, except with regards to essential functions in KEFF. Any federal restrictions imposed and still in effect must be followed.
