On Nov. 10, 2020, due to the continued rise in COVID-19 cases and the stress being experienced by hospitals, Sedgwick County’s Local Health Officer Dr. Garold Minns signed a new emergency public health order which will take effect tonight at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2020 and be in place until at least midnight Thursday, Dec. 31, 2020. Here’s a summary of new regulations affecting Derby:
Masks or face coverings are still required to be worn in public spaces and in public gatherings.
The public health order is being enforced in Derby beginning on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. As with past public health orders, Derby Police will encourage compliance and will pursue enforcement through Derby Municipal Court. If in the future, the Derby City Council and Sedgwick County Commission sign an agreement for cases to go through Sedgwick County Court, the enforcement mechanism could change. Regardless, Derby Police will continue to educate, encourage compliance, and will pursue enforcement. Fines could range up to $500.
Please continue to be patient as businesses adapt to new requirements. If you have concerns about compliance at a particular location, call the Derby Police Department at 788-1557. Do not call the 9-1-1 emergency system.
