Stay at home order extended through May 10
The Johnson County Public Health Officer indicated earlier today that he intends to extend the county's stay-at-home order through May 10. This public health order includes Gardner, KS. The city will continue to make preparations for a May 11 reopening. Currently, we have secured a supply of Personal Protective Equipment and are working with the Gardner Edgerton Chamber of Commerce to make these supplies available to Gardner businesses. The city is also working with local health partners and laboratories to try to secure the supplies needed to conduct community testing. We will provide more information in the coming days.
A phased reopening plan for Johnson County has been drafted by the COVID-19 Recovery Planning Task Force and will go to the Johnson County Board of Commissioners for approval tomorrow afternoon. A link to the final draft is below.
