Coronavirus in Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – Dr. Lee Norman, Secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), held a press briefing from the Topeka Statehouse Wednesday afternoon regarding COVID-19 updates in the state.

Secretary Norman started the briefing by stating that there have been 1,267 new COVID-19 cases and 21 deaths since Monday.

Dr. Norman explained the new method KDHE uses for reporting COVID-19 clusters by specifically counting five-or-more cases that have taken place in a single location within the last 14 days.

The new reporting system, which will reflect the most current and accurate information, is designed with the intention of 1. increased transparency and 2. to empower Kansans to assess their own personal risks when it comes to where they go and who they visit.
