Kansas death toll from coronavirus grows to 9

As a statewide stay-at-home order took effect and the Kansas coronavirus death toll grew to nine, President Donald Trump issued a major disaster declaration for the state. Trump's order allows for federal assistance to supplement state, tribal and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by the coronavirus pandemic. 

Also Monday, the Kansas City Star reports a nursing home in eastern Kansas has 18 confirmed cases among staff and residents. The Life Care Center in Burlington is part of a chain that includes a home in Kansas City, Kansas, where the state's first COVID-19 death was reported.
