Coronavirus

Last updated Nov. 14, 2020

Johnson County, including Lenexa, will be under new countywide COVID-19 restrictions beginning Monday, Nov. 16. After nearly six hours of discussion about the high levels of virus transmission in the community and the impact on schools and hospitals, the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners, issued an emergency public health order to slow the spread of the virus. The order is available at this link.

A few key points from the health order are:

  • 6 feet of physical distance must be maintained between individuals who do not reside together.
  • Gatherings are limited to 50 people or 50% capacity, whichever is less.
  • All restaurants plus bars, night clubs, or other businesses licensed to sell alcohol must close by 12 a.m. (midnight). Takeout can continue.
  • Nail salons, barber shops, hair salons, tattoo parlors, dentists and other personal services must be by appointment only with online or text message check-in.
  • Fairs, festivals, carnivals, parades, and other similar events cannot occur.
  • Fitness centers and health clubs must close locker rooms.
  • Recreational and youth sports practices and events must be limited to a maximum of two attendees per participant.
  • Masks are still required in all public spaces.

Police Department

Patrols will not decrease. Officers will exercise great discretion in their proactive enforcement activities. The following remain our highest priority calls for service:

  • Crimes in progress 
  • Issues affecting public safety
  • Issues affecting traffic safety and traffic flow
  • Medical calls in which officers could perform life-saving measures
  • Calls otherwise deemed critical in nature and time sensitive

When individuals call to request police services, it is possible that in rare instances we would take the report over the phone rather than dispatch an officer. We will still dispatch officers on high priority calls. Please do not hesitate to call 911 or our non-emergency line at 913.477.7301 if you need police services. We will then determine the best response to that request based on the information we receive.

The following services which ordinarily take place at our station are being suspended until further notice: 

  • Fingerprinting services
  • Child car-seat inspections
  • Old/unused/expired prescription medication drop-off

  • Citizen and student ride along program will be suspended until further notice. 
  • All public education activities including station tours, CPR classes, Citizen Fire Academy, etc. will be suspended until further notice.

Parks & Recreation reopening plans

Current status highlights

Lenexa Parks & Recreation Face Covering Code of Conduct

Per Gov. Laura Kelly’s Executive Order #20-52, individuals age 6 and older must wear face masks when entering Lenexa Parks & Recreation facilities and traveling through non-workout areas. This includes the Rec Center, Community Center, Senior Center, Thompson Barn, Indian Trails Aquatic Center and Legler Barn Museum. If you expect to participate in strenuous activity that could result in difficulty breathing while wearing a mask, we encourage you to wear a mask until you reach your location of exercise and after the exercise is complete. 

In addition, we strongly encourage members, guests and participants to wear masks while participating in activities where a mask is not restrictive to your breathing and you are comfortable performing the activity with it on. 

Face masks are strongly encouraged at the outdoor Farmers Market. 

No masks are allowed to be worn while in the water at a public pool.

Lenexa Farmers Market

The outdoor Lenexa Farmers Market is set up in a way that allows for social distancing. We continue to strongly encourage customers to wear a face mask.

COVID-19 health and safety precautions and expectations for shoppers

Lenexa Public Market

Kansas Governor Laura Kelly’s executive order mandating mask usage means that you’ll need to sport a face covering in most circumstances at the Public Market to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Starting Friday, July 3, if you’re shopping at a merchant stall, placing an order, walking through the market or attending a class, you must wear a mask. You do not need to wear a mask when seated at a table enjoying a meal or beverage.

Under the executive order, people are exempt from wearing a mask “while they are eating are drinking, provided they maintain a 6-foot distance between individuals (not including individuals who reside together or are seated together) with only infrequent or incidental moments of closer proximity.”

Masks are also not required for children age five and younger, people with certain medical conditions or people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Other exemptions also apply.

While wearing a mask is an important way to stop the spread of COVID-19, we ask that you continue to take these steps when you visit the Market:

  • Be patient, flexible and kind as everyone gets used to these changes.
  • Consider using carryout, curbside delivery and third-party delivery options, when available.
  • Please stay home if you are feeling ill or are showing signs or symptoms of the virus.
  • Be mindful to stay at least six feet away from other patrons and staff while in the Market.
  • Before moving tables, please ask a Market staff member.
  • Use the hand sanitizer stations available.
  • Do not come to the Market with groups larger than 10 people.

We are continuing to take the following steps to protect our customers, merchants and staff:

  • Tables are spaced at least six feet apart to meet social distancing guidelines, and seating is limited to groups of 10 customers or less.
  • We’ve placed signs on the floor to indicate proper social distancing.
  • High-touch surfaces and items are sanitized regularly, including but not limited to – door handles, push bars, tabletops and trash cans.
  • Market staff wear masks, wash hands often and wear gloves while busing tables.
  • Hand sanitizer stations are available for community use.
  • Staff and vendors stay home if they are sick.

Please check LenexaPublicMarket.com for updated information. 

City Council and other board and commission meetings

The Lenexa City Council continues conducting its meetings at 7 PM on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. Meetings are planned to be conducted in the City Hall Community Forum, 17101 W. 87th St. Pkwy.; however, due to the fluctuating circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, some meetings may need to be conducted remotely using Zoom, an online meeting tool. Notice will be sent to all subscribers of the City Council Agendas & Minutes. The Meeting Calendar on the city website will also have the most up-to-date information on meeting location.

Some Lenexa boards and commissions continue conducting meetings remotely using Zoom to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. For those meetings, board members, commission members and City staff will all participate in the meeting remotely. Members of the public may attend Zoom meetings virtually using the link and/or phone dial-in information provided in the Meetings Calendar section of the City’s website as well as on the specific meeting agenda itself. These boards and commissions will be prudent with the meeting time and consideration of agenda items.
