Stay at Home Order
On March 28, Governor Laura Kelly issued a stay at home order for all of Kansas. Executive Order No. 20-16 went 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's frequently asked questions provide more clarity about the state order. Questions on the state’s stay at home order can be emailed to KEFF@ks.gov.

As the weather improves and residents' interest in getting outdoors increases, JCPRD wants you to know that parks and trails are open. All indoor facilities are closed at this time, but there are plenty of opportunities to get exercise.
JCPRD Director Jeff Stewart asks residents to be mindful of increasing space between yourself and others to six feet or more and not gathering. Playgrounds and courts have also been closed to discourage this activity. Frequent disinfecting of these spaces is not possible.
Outdoor options include trail walking, running and biking, along with fishing and boating. Golf courses are also open beginning Monday, March 30, with "touchless golf". Only one person per cart will be permitted, and steps are being taken to clean carts after each use and ensure golf holes are not touched.
