The full letter can be found here. An excerpt is below:
“As your representative, my top priority is your safety. So today I wanted to share important updates on COVID-19 in Kansas, and how we'll continue to work for you moving forward.
We’re in close contact with local and state public health officials, who are working around the clock to curb the spread of this virus. We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our community safe, prepared and informed.
With that commitment in mind, today I am announcing operational changes to our offices to protect staff and constituents. This will help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, while still providing outstanding constituent services and legislative operations for our community.
Beginning on Monday, March 16, we will transition to an all-telework operation at our Washington, D.C., Overland Park, and Kansas City offices until further notice.
While our offices’ physical locations will be closed, we will still provide a continuity of services for Kansans, including:
- Receiving and responding to telephone calls. If you need to speak to a member of our team, you can call my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 225-2865, my Overland Park office at (913) 621-0832, or my Kansas City office at (913) 766-3993.
- Helping you navigate the federal government. If you are having issues such as stalled tax refunds or difficulty accessing Veteran’s benefits, we may be able to help. You can call my Overland Park office at (913) 621-0832 or my Kansas City office at (913) 766-3993 for assistance.
- Responding to your concerns. The best way to contact our office is via phone or email. You can email us here.
- Scheduling and taking meetings. If you would like to request a meeting with me or a member of my team, you can submit a meeting request here. Please note, as long as our teleworking policy is in place, we will conduct meetings via phone or video conference rather than in person.
It’s an honor and a privilege to represent you. My team and I will be here for you as we navigate this public health crisis together, and we’ll help in any way we can.”
