Kansas Gov Issues Statewide “Stay At Home” Order

The Kansas City Star reports:

Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly imposed a statewide stay at home order Saturday in an effort to slow the spread of the new coronavirus.

Kelly said the measure, which follows similar orders in the state’s most populous counties, is necessary to give health care workers the time to prepare for the peak of the virus and soften its impact on the state.

“We’re simply not ready for what we anticipate will be the peak of this pandemic,” Kelly said at a news conference Saturday.
