Kansas Gov. Issues Order to Wear Masks in Public and Work Places

TOPEKA, Kan. – The governor of Kansas has issued an order directing the state’s residents to wear masks in public places and work places starting Friday.

The order by Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly says Kansas residents must wear masks in indoor public spaces, while seeking health care or using public transportation. Masks must be worn outdoors in public when people can’t remain at least 6 feet (1.8 meters) from others.

Businesses must require their employees to wear masks in places frequented by the public, even if members of the public are not present or if they prepare food.

Kelly issued the order after the state had a surge in reported coronavirus cases following her decision to lift statewide restrictions on businesses and public gatherings on May 26. Kansas law allows each of the state’s 105 counties to opt out.
