Kelly, a Democrat, announced two new orders aimed at temporarily expanding health care access. She said in a statement that the orders “will make sure Kansas families can access needed care and supplies until we have weathered this storm.”

Sixty-four cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, are now confirmed in Kansas, including one announced Sunday in Bourbon County.
