As of 1:05 p.m., Reno County now has two presumptive positive cases of COVID-19. The patient is male, in their 40’s and recently had recently traveled out of state to a known communal transmission state. We cannot currently release any further information as case contact investigation is underway.

On March 21, 2020 Reno County Health Officer Nicholas Baldetti, DBA, MBA, MS, issued Health Order # 20-01 which prohibits mass gatherings to ten (10) or under within the borders of Reno County.

All mass gatherings should adhere to the social distancing guidelines of 6 feet between individuals.

Additionally, all inter-county travel to Johnson County, Kansas, Wyandotte County, Kansas, Jackson County, Missouri as well as Kansas City will now require mandatory 14-day quarantine.

It is well within the authority of the Reno County Health Officer to order individuals be placed in enforced quarantine if there is a belief that there is a threat to public health and safety due to the infectious disease COVID-19.

We continue to highly encourage Reno County residents to be dependent on health authorities to provide the most accurate information on COVID-19.

Please practice good hygiene with frequent hand washing, proper respiratory etiquette such as coughing and sneezing into your elbow bend, limit handshakes and physical contact. Stay home if you are feeling ill and call your primary care physician to discuss your symptoms.
