Resident and staff safety guiding City’s plan to open services and facilities

The City of Wichita will begin reopening city facilities and programs in phases. The plan was announced during the City’s weekly news briefing. The plan is aimed at being responsive to the community’s needs for programs and services but is flexible to prioritize the health and safety of staff and residents.

The City is coordinating with the County and State to best formulate reopening regulations. Employees are working hard to prepare buildings and programs and institute robust health and safety processes.

The City’s plan mirrors the County and State plans with a phased approach:

Phase 1 runs this week through May 26. City employees are busy preparing buildings with safety protocols, supplies and informational signage.

Phase 2 is planned for May 26 through June 30 in which we will begin opening up for business but with limited access to city facilities and programs and modified service deliveries. During Phase 2, we will be constantly and closely monitoring and assessing risks to the health and safety of our employees and residents before progressing further.

Phase 3 of our re-opening is scheduled for July 1 when we will be able to make a more accurate assessment for further loosening of restrictions and limitations of City facilities and programs.

The full phase out of our re-opening may take many months as we wait for a vaccine and/or further guidance from the State, CDC and the County.

The specifics on limitations and other safety precautions for each facility, building and program will be regularly updated at wichita.gov/coronavirus.
