Kansas has set a new record for a two-week spike in reported coronavirus cases.  That prompted the state's governor to issue a stern public warning Monday in hopes of pushing the public and local officials into accepting masks in public as necessary. 

Gov. Laura Kelly said the state has seen at least seven new clusters of two or more reported cases in the past five days directly related tied to bars and restaurants. During the past two weeks, Kansas reported an average of 317 new coronavirus cases a day.
