CLARIFICATION: Please note that these mandates do not apply to critical infrastructures needed to continue operations during this pandemic.
Public health, including hospitals, clinics, etc. need to have the staffing resources to continue serving Kansans.
While KDHE strongly recommends these quarantine restrictions for everyone, we do recognize that medical care needs to continue and no healthcare facility should ever be to a point where it would need to close due to staff being quarantined.
We ask facilities to ensure they have updated their Emergency Preparedness Plans and implement protocols to ensure that no employee comes to work symptomatic.
Other examples of critical infrastructures include pharmaceutical and food supply, along with others defined by the Department of Homeland Security.
