Read Local Health Order No. 8
(RILEY COUNTY, KS – May 15, 2020) Riley County Local Health Officer Julie Gibbs issued Order No. 8 which goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, May 18. This order is issued in response to the Governor’s Phase 1.5 Plan to Reopen Kansas. The new order replaces the previous Local Health Order No. 7 but keeps the requirement that restaurants close by 10:00 p.m.
Local Order No. 8 removes the restrictions on child care providers.
