Announcements:

Reopening Kansas comes by milestones, not on a timetable.  Progress will be measured by monitoring our testing rates, COVID-19 hospitalizations, ability to contact trace, and the availability of personal protective equipment.  Here’s what you can do to help reach reopening milestones:

  • Stay home if you’re sick.
  • Wear masks in public settings.
  • Maximize physical distance (6 feet or more) in public settings.
  • Avoid socializing with large groups.
  • High-risk individuals should only leave the house for essential needs.
  • Minimize nonessential travel.
  • Check-in (via phone/letter/text/email) with friends and family who are isolated.
  • Wash your hands frequently.

Help our community in slowing the spread of this virus.  Only follow official sources to obtain information: www.saline.org/coronavirus or www.kdheks.gov  Stay Safe & Stay Healthy.
