Sedgwick County residents asked to contact officials before scheduling, holding large events
Sedgwick County residents and organizers are asked to contact county officials for recommendations before scheduling or holding any large-scale event in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"There is no vaccine for the disease; the only tools currently available for residents to protect themselves are healthy behaviors like washing your hands often with soap and water, wearing a mask when in public if you are able, and practicing social distancing by keeping six feet of space between you and others," said the county.
If you are planning a large event, you can contact the Sedgwick County Commission Office at (316) 660-9300 or Sedgwick County Health Department at (316) 660-7300.
There are currently 365 actives cases of COVID-19 in Sedgwick County. While the number of cases continues to set daily records, the number of new cases (25) is down from Thursday.
