UPDATE 4 p.m.:
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment now reports there are 7 cases of Covid-19 in Sedgwick County.
Two new cases of Covid-19 have been reported in Sedgwick County.
Sedgwick County Manager Tom Stolz says the 3rd and 4th case were reported to authorities Monday afternoon and evening. They are a man and woman both under 60.
Neither had recently traveled so it is unclear how they contracted the illness. Both are recovering at home and are not hospitalized.
Meanwhile, the county says County Health Officer Dr. Garold Minns has signed off on the stay-at-home order approved by commissioners Monday evening in a 3 to 2 vote. That will go into effect Wednesday, March 25. Governor Kelly signed an executive order that went into effect Tuesday morning barring gatherings over 10.
She also signed orders extending the deadline for vehicle registrations. She has requested law enforcement not to pull over vehicles with expired tags until the executive order is lifted.
For businesses with questions about the stay-at-home order please call 316-660-9000 OR email email@example.com. The order and list of essential businesses can be found below.
