Lawrence, KS – According to the statement, mass gatherings are only allowed with 50 people or fewer. But, the new order would get rid of that cap.
An indoor capacity limit of 50% would remain on indoor businesses and most public venues.
The order would allow businesses to opt out of that limit if they provide written notice to Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health and post a sign notifying patrons at their front entrance.
The mask mandate would stay in effect. Businesses must also adhere to social distancing.
If the new order is approved by a majority of the County Commission, it would take effect at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, April 15.
