Governor Laura Kelly is letting county government and county health officials take over deciding the guidelines and timelines for reopening businesses.

The Sedgwick County Commission held a meeting Wednesday to take up the issue.

At the meeting, commissioner David Dennis made a substitute motion to not impose additional limits, based on current conditions and recommend that Sedgwick County residents and businesses continue to adhere to the phases and guidance in the state’s Ad Astra plan with modifications that it further defines public gatherings as persons commonly known to one another and allow gatherings of up to 20 individuals. The motion passed 3-2 with commissioners David Dennis, Lacey Cruse, and Pete Meitzner in favor. Commissioners Jim Howell and Michael O’Donnell voted against.
