The Saline County Health Department is working closely with KDHE after a facility in Salina was recognized by KDHE for having an outbreak of COVID-19 cases. At this time, information about this facility will not be released to the public. The Health Department has already contacted all employees at this facility that were at risk for exposure.

At 11 am, KDHE reported a total of 1376 confirmed cases in Kansas and 62 deaths. Saline County has a total of 10 positive cases, with two of those resulting in death.

Governor Kelly’s Statewide Stay-at-Home order is still in effect. Social distancing is imperative. It cannot be stressed enough the importance of staying home and only going out for essential tasks.
