CITIZENS OF LEES SUMMIT AND HOA’S, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The City, Jackson County Health Department and Police Department are receiving daily notifications regarding non-compliance with Jackson County’s Stay-At-Home Executive Order within our neighborhoods. We all need to work together to ensure compliance with the stay-at-home order to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Please remember, this is a stay-at-home order. This means YOUR home. Gatherings in driveways, cul-de-sacs and backyards have become popular. Remember, all social gatherings must be 10 or less people and you must maintain proper social distancing (six feet between others). This also includes our children.
There have also been reports of food/drink/treat trucks visiting neighborhoods with large groups of children and adults gathered around these trucks. Even for business conducted outside, it is critical to practice social distancing to stop the spread of the virus. Explain what six feet of healthy space means to our children and most of all, model social distancing for them.
Finally, it is great to go outside, get fresh air and enjoy the great weather - from a distance! City and county officials are urging HOA’s to consider temporary closure of playground areas. Not only do playgrounds create a place for children and adults to be too close to one another, playgrounds are high-touch areas where the virus can be easily spread.
If a business is not complying with Jackson County’s stay-at-home order, please notify the Jackson County Health Department at 816.404.6416 or online at form.jotform.com/200893915181155. Jurisdiction and enforcement in these matters begin with the Jackson County Health Department.
We are all making enormous sacrifices, but we are doing it for the right reason. Our number one priority is the health and safety of the community. We ask that you join us in Coming Together by Staying Apart! #TogetherLS ... See MoreSee Less

We MUST continue supporting our local Mom & Pop businesses by utilizing curbside or delivery services for things like meals.They play a vital role in our local economics especially in our beautiful downtown area. Today would be a great day to let them know we're there for them on #MomAndPopBusinessOwnersDay.
To reiterate we do NOT encourage folks to go out as families to patronize the businesses. PLEASE stay home and use the other services #ForYourSafety. ... See MoreSee Less
