Good idea Kansas Learning Center for Health!

Sand Creek Path is a good option, just respect your neighbors health and stay 6 feet apart.We know families are eager to get out of the house, but please know that playgrounds are not a good choice right now. Please enjoy outdoor activities that don’t require touching public structures and that allow you to stay at least six feet away from anyone outside your household.

Please institute a strict shelter in place order. Please! Our spreading of the virus today will determine the number of persons with covid 19 symptoms next week and the number of seriously ill persons two weeks from today. The longer this virus spreads unchecked the higher those numbers become.

Why are we always the last to take action. All counties around us have placed stay at home orders. McPherson did that within hours of their first case. Try representing the citizens best interests and don’t make every business essential. The order in Sedgwick county is pointless

Will you be reviewing shelter in place before then since adjacent counties are under and traveling in to work in our county.

Hutch RecSelf-Isolation Tip: Drink plenty of water. It's not a secret that drinking water is good for you. During your time in isolation, it's important to stay hydrated. Adequate water boosts the immune system and enhances brain function. It is suggested to drink 64 ounces of water each day. ... See moreSee less

Harvey CountyThis evening, we received notice of our first presumptive positive case of novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, in Harvey County. The case is a Harvey County man in his 20s. He is currently in home isolation. We have already begun working with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to monitor the individual and follow up on contacts.

We've been working with partner agencies in the county for several weeks to prepare and practice for a potential COVID-19 case. We are proud that everyone involved followed correct procedures to ensure the safety of the individual and local staff. Our local medical professionals and first responders have put many hours into preparation for COVID-19 over the past several weeks. We're thankful for their unwavering service to our communities.

You still play an important part in reducing the potential spread of COVID-19. Practice social distancing and avoid non-essential events and travel. Wash your hands frequently, cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue and stay home if you're sick. COVID-19 symptoms include a fever of 100.4 F or more, cough or shortness of breath. Call your medical provider to discuss symptoms.

We'll continue to share information as it becomes available. Thank you to everyone for continuing to do your part to help reduce the potential spread of COVID-19.

We've had to make some more updates to our operations in our parks as we do our part to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19. Camp Hawk, East Park and West Park will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. until further notice. Camping is not available, and playgrounds and restrooms are closed. Open shelter reservations are still available, but must be limited to 10 people. Please practice social distancing while in the parks.

We know that's a lot of things that you all love to do (and we love having you out here for them). But there's still a lot available. You can ...

🐴 Ride a horse trail
🎣 Go fishing
📚 Read a book in the great weather

... and a lot more stuff. It's not everything, but there's still a lot to do in Harvey County Parks.

While I respect your decision to do so, can I ask why? I feel camping in itself is good implementation of social distancing and if parks and rest rooms are closed there is nothing to cause a "group of ten or more" to gather. Again I respect the decision I am just curious.

When will camping be open?

Understand no restrooms. There wouldn't be a shred of t/p left. 😁

What about boating or water craft on lakes

When you reevaluate when the park could open.

Will Hunter's bait shop be open at all?

I know it's closed after 730pm that means no night fishing ?

Ugh!!! Really wanted to camp.next weekend

Chad Woerner not sure if you were still planning on camping this weekend but looks like it’s not allowed.

Bradley Vincent Haynes no quarantine camping 😔

Oh no!!!
