Jackson County Executive issues amendment to COVID-19 state of emergency

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. issued an executive order yesterday prohibiting large group events of 1,000 or more people in all of Jackson County in an effort to remain consistent with the City of Kansas City and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Public health officials have since announced the first death related to the virus in Wyandotte County, emphasizing that it is the first instance of community spread in the metropolitan area. Due to this information, the County Executive believes it is prudent to modify his original order.

Today, County Executive White has amended his executive order further enhancing the County’s ability to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new order now calls for no large group events of 250 or more people, which is consistent with CDC guidelines and policies across the nation, including Washington State, Oregon, California, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Maryland.

The County Executive’s order applies to all of eastern Jackson County, including, but not limited to:

- Blue Springs
- Blue Summit
- Buckner
- Grain Valley
- Grandview
- Greenwood
- Independence
- Lake Lotawana
- Lake Tapawingo
- Lee’s Summit
- Levasy
- Lone Jack
- Martin City
- Oak Grove
- Sugar Creek
- Raytown

The County’s restriction on large group events applies to all non-essential professional, social and community gatherings where people are not separated by physical space of at least four feet (which is slightly longer than an average arm’s length).

The order does not apply to activities such as attendance at regular school classes, work, essential public transportation, airport travel, shopping at a store or mall or congregate living situations.

Currently, there are no cases of COVID-19 in Jackson County. The Jackson County Health Department is working closely with its partners across the community and region to monitor this rapidly evolving situation. The public can stay informed by signing up for digital updates or submitting questions to public health experts in the County by visiting www.jacohd.org.

Developing . . .


  1. Noticed that a lot of groups were trying to get around the declaration. No word about enforcement. I wonder what authorities will do when local events break the rules.

  2. Screw you Frank

  3. Oh sure cancel everything but all the stores and shopping centers can stay up and running fuck that bullshit.

  4. Donald Trump
    It is my great honor to declare Sunday, March 15th as a National Day of Prayer. We are a Country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these. No matter where you may be, I encourage you to turn towards prayer in an act of faith. Together, we will easily PREVAIL!

  5. Charmin executives are popping champagne corks.

  6. Frankie boi waits until everybody else makes their decisions then he comes out acting like he knows what he’s doing, too bad we already know he doesn’t.

  7. Frank White to give back all money he stole during the 2019 assessment.

  8. But he is keeping one of dirtiest public buildings in KC open. They stuff people in the elevators at the courthouse like cattle. It's sickening.

  9. is Frankie boi going to follow his mandate in his 1000 inmate and hundreds of guards dirty jail?

  10. Like Frank White, when I was in grammar school in Rochester, NY, in the 50's, they used to do regular head checks for cooties, and they also sent us to the dental dispensary to have our teeth checked. We'd go as a class, on a school bus. And of course there was no busing for city schools back then. School buses were only used for school excursions, like to the museum.

  11. Thanks Frank you stupid dip-shit thief who is stealing our money with your ridiculous property tax increase.

    The same guy who had the previous Jackson County Executive and current prison inmate Mike Sanders pay off White's mortgage and property taxes just a few years ago.

    Most hated man in Kansas City and will be remembered 50 years from now as being the only person booed at the Chiefs Super Bowl Parade.

  12. Martin City is in KCMO
