Press Release

Representative Sharice Davids issued the following statement on news of three additional presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 in Johnson County:


“The safety of Kansans has always been, and will continue to be, my top priority. My office has been in close contact with local and state public health officials, who are working around the clock to contain these cases and any others that may occur. We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our community safe, prepared and informed. Everyone has a role to play in reducing the spread of this virus in our community, including practicing preventative measures like covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze, staying home when you are sick, and avoiding touching your face.


“In an effort to keep Kansans up to date, my office is hosting a community Call with your Congresswoman tonight with Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Lee Norman, M.D. We will provide an update on the status of COVID-19 in our community and measures being taken in Kansas to contain the spread of the disease, and answer any questions listeners may have. For community members who cannot make the call, my office has a web page dedicated to up to date coronavirus information, which is available at Davids.House.Gov/coronavirus.”
