On Tuesday, 9/22/2020, the Safe Reopening Task force reviewed the data regarding new cases in Sedgwick County and available hospital beds.  The 14 day rolling average of new COVID cases in our county has been relatively stable during the previous two week period, but doesn’t show a steady decline.  In addition, though the Sedgwick County COVID dashboard classifies our hospital status as moderate, it indicates there are more beds available than there were two weeks ago.  Per the Task Force’s review, we will continue in Phase 2 of our plan for reopening the building.  The next assessment is on 10/13/2020.

At this time, we are currently in Phase 2.

Below you will find content related to our plan for functioning during this time of COVID-19. The full plan is included below as a pdf document, as well as a synopsis of each phase of the plan. At the bottom of the page are videos pertaining to each section of the plan.
