Anyone who attended the Wabaunsee County Fair, July 24th- 27th, and/or fair activities should monitor themselves for COVID symptoms. An individual(s) who attended the fair and accompanying activities, including the rodeo, lawn chair concert, parade, and feed, has tested positive.
Symptoms include: fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, runny nose, sore throat, loss of taste and smell, fatigue, cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Should you develop symptoms, please contact the Wabaunsee County Health Department at 785-765-2425, or contact your physician to arrange testing.
The Wabaunsee County Courthouse has re-opened to the public. Consumers are asked to check in and maintain social distancing. Each office has a limit on how many individuals may be present at a time. Most services can be conducted on-line or over the phone. The sheriff’s office is still working around the clock. Some of the calls for service will be conducted over the phone and when we meet with the public we will try to conduct some of the business outside. There will be no jail visitation until further notice. This is a situation that most of us have never experienced and the conditions are changing often. We ask everyone to be safe and use precautions as ordered or suggested by the Health Department and public officials. Be aware and keep yourselves informed with accurate and factual information. We have a large number of those considered to be part of the vulnerable population in our county. Assistance is available for those in need. The county public transportation services will assist in getting medications and assistance to those in need. If you are in need during this time of national emergency and do not know where to turn contact the sheriff’s office at 785-765-3323 and we will assist in locating a service provider. Let’s help each other as we can.

As always, we ask that our citizens be aware and vigilant. Please report any and all suspicious activity. We know that we cannot do this job without your support and confidence. We thank you for that trust and support.
Be safe and be aware.
