McPherson County is in Phase 3 of Reopening Kansas. Updated documents can be found on mcphersoncoutyks.us on the home page, under “COVID19: Reopening McPherson County.”

McPherson County Health Department recommends McPherson County remains in Phase 3 at least until August 17th, 2020. This decision extends Phase 3 by two incubation periods and is based off the number of positive cases with unknown exposure and the continuous increase in new cases. Extending it by four weeks instead of two will allow businesses and communities to plan for additional precautions beyond a two-week interval.

The Health Department constantly assesses the presence of COVID-19 in McPherson County and our recommendations reflect the data we collect.
