Health department relaxes restrictions

Restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic continue to change almost daily. The information contained in the current issue of the Jewell County Record was out-of-date before the paper was delivered.

On Monday the Jewell County Health Department removed all travel orders previously placed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, however non-essential travel continues to be discouraged. The state of Kansas still has mandatory orders associated with a number of travel options including international travel, cruises, visits to New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusettes, Rhode Island and Maryland.

The 14-day quarantine for individuals who have traveled to Johnson, Wyandotte, Leavenworth, Sedgwick, Shawnee, Finney, Ford, Seward and Lyon counties in Kansas and the Nebraska counties of Hall, Dakota, Douglas, Lancaster, Saline, Dawson, Adams and Buffalo has been lifted.

Cafes now have an open option and customers are allowed self-serve fountain drinks, coffee pots and buffet style dining.

All residents are encouraged to wear cloth masks in public, maintain a 6-foot distance when in public and avoid socializing in groups of 10 or more people.

On Thursday Jewell County moved from Phase 1.5 to Phase 2.

Access to the courthouse continues to be restricted to those who have appointments.

This information was current at 9 a.m. Thursday but is subject to change.
