Kansas cases of coronavirus climb to 1,046

Coronavirus in Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is reporting 1,046 positive cases of COVID-19 in the state. Dr. Lee Norman, Secretary of Kansas Department of Health and Environment, announced the number at a meeting Wednesday afternoon in Topeka.

There have been 38 deaths.

On Tuesday, Gov. Kelly issued an executive order to limit religious gatherings and funerals ahead of Easter. She said 25% of coronavirus outbreaks in Kansas are tied to religious gatherings.

However, lawmakers overturned Gov. Laura Kelly’s executive order amid the coronavirus outbreak after the state’s top prosecutor said it likely violates the state constitution. The Legislative Coordinating Council voted 5-2 Wednesday to topple the order that limited in-person religious services and funerals to 10 people.

The Kansas Justice Institute sent a letter to Gov. Laura Kelly regarding Executive Order 20-18 raising constitutional concerns on the substance of EO 20-18.
