COVID-19 Kansas City (3/21/2020)

State Update and Information


A short time ago, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas announced that starting Tuesday, March 24, 2020, a stay-at-home policy will go into effect.

Kansas City residents will still work and will still be able to complete essential activities for their health and safety, such as going to the bank, grocery store, pharmacy, hardware store, doctor's appointments, and laundromat. However, when not working or doing these essential activities, the policy is to stay home.

Although we don't believe that you will need them, we have attached two letters.* The first from Easterseals designating you as an essential healthcare provider and a second from the Missouri Department of Mental Health, highlighting as such, you are empowered to travel to and from work. At this time, most of our Kansas City programs are suspended, but for those deployed to other assignments, please have these documents with you just in case. We recommend taking a photo of each on your phone so that you have them with you.

As always, thank you for all that you do. As essential health care and community service providers, you are making all the difference in the lives of the people you support.

Laurel Taylor
Chief Human Resources Officer
