ICYMI: Ellis County given all clear with no COVID business restrictions, will meet tonight


The Ellis County Health Department announced early Wednesday morning that they will not enforce any resident or business restrictions regarding COVID-19. This is in wake of Gov. Kelly returning restriction control to Kansas counties earlier last week. According to the governor’s executive order, this decision was made as a result of statewide unemployment and the current economy in Kansas. 

ECHD encourages residents to still practice good hygiene and take necessary precautions, according to a press release issued Wednesday morning. Also according to the release, Ellis County has had zero cases of COVID-19 in the past two weeks and no cases for over five weeks. 

The County Commission will have its almost-weekly meeting tonight. Among other speakers, High Plains Mental Health is scheduled to give their annual report and county administrator Darin Myers is listed to give a 2021 county budget review. 

Residents can view this meeting and other resources via Ellis County’s YouTube or Facebook page.
