HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The Reno County reopening plan will be announced Wednesday.

In a release Tuesday night, Reno County Health Officer Nick Baldetti announced that, "robust and thoughtful discussions are ongoing toward the pursuit of sensible and informed decision making in moving Reno County onward. The Reno County Board of Health, Reno County Economic Recovery Task Force, and associated stakeholder groups therein are offering their time, thoughts, and expertise in ensuring Reno County residents are safe, secure, and economically active."

The restrictions proposed by the Task Force prior to Kelly's announcement appeared to move at a faster pace than her original Ad Astra reopening plan. No executive orders restricting business or movement from the state level are in effect from 12:01 a.m. Wednesday until new guidance from the county level is released.
