“We are in uncharted territory,” said commissioner Jerry Daniels to close Tuesday’s meeting, echoing a sentiment that hung over the entire proceeding, not to mention neatly summarizes how most residents are feeling these days.

However, given Gov. Laura Kelly’s executive “stay-at-home” order to stem the COVID-19 pandemic, Allen County commissioners said there was little more that the county could do at this stage.

“[For the most part,] I think the Governor’s directive took care of any further action from any county,” said Daniels.
