The effort to enforce public health rules during the pandemic continues this afternoon with a bold pronouncement from the Kansas Guv.

Governor Kelly is issuing a new executive order that details what she believes should be “a standard for Kansas” on face mask protocols.
The Democratic governor already issued a statewide mask mandate in July, but state law allowed the 105 counties in Kansas to opt out — and most did. Now, under Kelly’s new order, she’s giving counties that still don’t have a policy on face masks another chance.
Leaders in these Kansas counties have one week to create their own face mask order. If they don’t, Kelly said, they will automatically be opted in to the protocols set in her new order.
Locally, this doesn't change much for our Golden Ghetto neighbors who have already adopted a mask mandate and grumble about it constantly.
Still, the pandemic power move deserves attention as COVID flexing from politicos shows no sign of letting up.
