community informed. The percent of positive cases out of how many McPherson County residents were tested during a 14-day period will facilitate
MCHD recommendations. Criteria that will influence the recommendation to move schools to more or less restrictive measures can be found on mcphersoncountyks.us on the home page, under “COVID-19: Reopening McPherson County.”
