Health Order 20-04 has been put into place due to our extremely high case count, high PTR and Hutchinson Regional Medical Center Covid-19 increased cases.  The average number of cases in HRMC is between 35-40 cases per day.  The order limits mass gatherings to “10” people, this does not include public and private business/school functions.  However, social distancing of more than 6’ is highly recommended at work, and mandated at sporting events and social functions.  A community effort is needed to decrease the COVID-19 cases in Reno County. - Covid Cut-Off Town Hall meeting explains from a medical perspective of what we are seeing at the hospital.
