Allen County commissioners held a special meeting Thursday afternoon to officially reopen the county.

The meeting followed Gov. Laura Kelly’s decision to change the “Ad Astra: Plan to Reopen Kansas” from a state-wide mandate to a series of recommendations.

This shifted authority regarding COVID-19 regulations from the state to individual counties, leaving decisions to local health and county officials.
