White House report calls for stricter coronavirus measures in Sedgwick County

The Sedgwick County Commission has no immediate plans to follow a White House task force report that lays out additional measures county officials should take to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

A White House Coronavirus Task Force report released Thursday by the Center for Public Integrity places Sedgwick County in the “red zone” for coronavirus cases and says county officials should use more restrictive public health mandates to protect against the virus.

The White House report calls for Sedgwick County officials to close bars, nightclubs and gyms, issue orders limiting gatherings to 10 people, increase outdoor dining opportunities and cut indoor occupancy rates in restaurants to 25%.
