Sedgwick County , Kansas “Stay at Home” in Effect Until April 23, 2020

Updated to add the PDF proposal.

The Sedgwick County Commission voted yesterday to put it in effect 12:01 A. M. this morning. It’s 30 days, but can be amended or changed as needed.

As of yesterday, the County had 7 confirmed cases of COVID-19. We are the second largest county by population. We have fewer confirmed cases than the Kansas City (Kansas) area which has 127 confirmed cases 8 hours ago.

That’s not to say we don’t have unconfirmed cases here than have not been reported.

What has not helped is too many people of all ages taking it less seriously than they should have taken it. We don’t know how bad it will get, but I went with “Prepare for the worst, hope for the best” attitude. Dad taught me that. I hoped it would be less severe, but went worst case scenario to be safe.

I rarely get out since my favorite internet cafe went to take out only. Only to grocery store, convenience store (much closer and has the basics in groceries I need). Have not been to my doctor lately, but I suspect they are packed as it’s a busy office normally.

Here’s hoping more people realize it needs to be taken seriously. Best to learn from South Korea and Taiwan’s example than from Italy’s example. As much as I love Italy, many Italians did not take it seriously. Same can be said for citizens of other countries or areas who have not been impacted heavily yet.
