COVID-19 Orders and Documents

New uniform emergency rules to mitigate spread of COVID-19 pandemic, including closures of bars and restaurants and prohibitions on most gatherings of 10 or more, implemented in Prairie Village

Post Date:03/17/2020 1:15 PM

UPDATE - On March 19, the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners removed exemptions for faith-based activities, weddings and funerals from the restrictions on gatherings of 10 or more people.   


Prairie Village – Local authorities are asking Prairie Village residents and business owners to comply with the Emergency Public Health Order issued by Johnson County to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Johnson County.

The order, issued March 16 and effective as of 12:01 a.m. March 17:

1.) Closes bars, restaurants, and movie theaters. Businesses are allowed to continue to provide carryout, drive-through, and delivery food and beverage services.

2.) Prohibits gatherings of 10 or more people, both indoors and outdoors. Exceptions include governmental and judicial functions, healthcare facilities, private business operations, religious and faith-based activities, weddings and funerals. A “gathering” does not include normal operations at spaces where people may be in transit or coming and going individually or in groups of less than 10 people. 

The new, Countywide rules were adopted by Prairie Village in its City emergency declaration. Initial City focus will be on education and communication, encouraging voluntary compliance with these requirements. Appropriate social distancing and other mitigation techniques should also be observed in compliance with directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and the Johnson County Local Health Officer.

Prairie Village will continue to assess the situation daily and provide additional updates, modifications and guidance as they become available.

“We understand these measures put a significant financial burden on our business owners and workers,” Prairie Village Mayor Eric Mikkelson said. “The alternative, however, could be even more devastating.”
