The local health department will no longer investigate COVID-19 cases or report weekly totals because of a state-level change.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment will take over that responsibility.

The Allen County Health Department has worked with schools and long-term care facilities on COVID cases, outbreaks and contact tracing. That will soon transition to the state, Southeast Kansas Multi-County Health Department Director Rebecca Johnson said.
