The Lenexa Chamber is committed to adapting how we serve our members during this challenging period. Chamber staff will continue to communicate with our members regularly via email and social media to keep you connected and informed about events. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook at @LenexaChamber.

STATE AND LOCAL ORDERS

On April 1, 2021, the state’s Legislative Coordinating Council voted to revoke Gov. Laura Kelly’s statewide mask order. Kansas now has no mandated statewide mitigation measures.

Johnson County’s Public Health Order requiring masks, social distancing, and other mitigation provisions expired as of April 30, 2021. The Johnson County Board of County Commissioners instead issued a new resolution strongly encouraging COVID-19 safety precautions continue to be followed by residents and businesses. Read the resolution at https://bit.ly/3nQsr48.

Businesses and organizations may continue to set their own COVID-19 mitigation policies.
