Stay at Home Orders

Beginning Friday, March 20, 2020, at least 14 Kansas counties have issued emergency “stay at home” orders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each of these local orders defines, and exempts, “essential businesses.”

Earlier this week, Governor Laura Kelly issued Executive Order #20-15. This Executive Order establishes a “Kansas Essential Functions Framework (KEFF)” to identify a state-wide list of “essential businesses.” The KEFF is based on national critical function guidelines established for pandemic and other disaster response efforts.

The Governor’s Order identifies agribusiness, grain storage, and biofuel production as essential functions and industries. The KEFF includes businesses that maintain supply chains for essential functions and critical infrastructure as defined by a March 19, 2020 US Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) memorandum. The memorandum defines “agricultural storage facilities,” “agricultural inputs,” and biofuel facilities as critical infrastructure.

Your association has received essential industry verification from the following counties that have issued an emergency order: Douglas, Franklin, Johnson, Leavenworth, Miami, Lyon, Sedgwick, Shawnee, Wyandotte.
