Parks & Recreation COVID-19 response plan

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

The recent reauthorization of the Johnson County Health Order includes several changes, including lifting the limitation on indoor and outdoor mass gatherings. However, the Order still requires mask wearing and social distancing. Being both a public space as well as a restaurant, visiting the Public Market will still include following a few simple guidelines.

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 your food or drinks.

Under the County health order, people are exempt from wearing a mask if “seated at a restaurant while they are eating or drinking, provided they maintain a 6-foot distance between any other tables and individuals seated at such tables.”

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 ensure we beat COVID-19, we ask that you continue to take these steps when you visit the Market:

  • Be patient, flexible, and kind to everyone.
  • Consider eating outside while the weather is nice, 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.

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.
  • 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.

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.
