Kansas City’s Stay at Home Order extended until May 15th

Kansas City residents looking forward to having their Stay at Home Order lifted this coming Friday will now have to wait until May 15th.

This comes after the original Stay at Home Order that started on March 24th had been extended.

The guidelines residents are expected to follow will be the same.  People will be asked to stay in their homes unless they go to work at an essential job; are getting food, supplies, or medical care; or are exercising.  They are asked to maintain social distancing guidelines and to have no more than 10 people at a gathering.

This extension comes after regional public health officers and directors in the nine Kansas City metropolitan area counties extended the order to help slow the spread of COVID-19.  It is believed peak infection in the Kansas City Metro area will come at the end of April.
