Three case virus increase confirmed in Atchison Co
07/02/2020

(KAIR)--Atchison County on Thursday confirmed a three case increase of positive COVID-19 cases, bringing the total case-count to 39.

That follows a two case increase confirmed Wednesday.

According to a release from Atchison County Emergency Management Director Wes Lanter, the 37th case is a woman in her twenties, the 38th is a teenage girl, and the 39th case is a woman in her fifties.

All three cases are deemed to be due to community spread.

28 of the county’s cases have recovered, while two remain hospitalized.

As the county’s numbers continue to rise, a failed motion during Tuesday’s meeting of the Atchison County Commission means county residents will need to wear masks in accordance with the order from Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, effective Friday.
