Douglas County adopts Governor’s Phase 2 plan in local order

Douglas County’s Unified Command leadership has agreed to adopt Gov. Laura Kelly’s current Phase 2 in a local health order to keep continuity in the local Smart and Safe: Reopening Douglas County plan.

“This gives people of Douglas County the message that we’re going to stick with the current public health measures to guard against the spread of COVID-19 as part of a phased reopening, and we think it’s a good plan that is working in our area,” said Douglas County Health Officer Dr. Thomas Marcellino, who issued the local health order that takes effect at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, May 27.

The governor’s decision on May 26 returned health order decisions to the local level. Click here to read the full press release.
