(RILEY COUNTY, KS – May 26, 2020) Riley County Local Health Officer Julie Gibbs has issued Order No. 10 which allows all businesses to reopen, and increases the amount of people allowed to gather to 50. This order is in response to Governor Kelly’s announcement that the statewide order for Kansas will expire at midnight tonight. Local Order No. 10 goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, May 27.

This order will remain in effect for 14 days, or until amended, superseded, or rescinded. Large venues of more than 2,000 capacity are not allowed under the new order.

Read the order at https://www.rileycountyks.gov/DocumentCenter/View/18901/Local-Health-Order-10.

Businesses will be required to comply with the following:

  • Restaurants and bars shall close  to the public no later than 12:00 a.m. (midnight) except for drive-through, carry out, or delivery;
  • All businesses and locations are required to take proactive measures to ensure compliance with Recommended Business Practices as published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and industry-specific guidance by trade groups. Nothing in this order shall be interpreted to require that any business or location open if they choose not to.
  • Any businesses or other locations found in non-compliance with this order, or a source of significant disease outbreak, or as determined and notified by the Local Public Health Officer shall close;

“The data for Riley County indicates that reopening can continue,” said Local Health Officer Julie Gibbs. “The number of active cases has fallen to single digits and Via Christi hospital has no positive patients at this time. We ask that everyone continue to follow safety guidelines for social distancing and hygiene, so we can continue to see success.”

People in high-risk categories are advised to take extra precautions and limit their contact with the public. The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
