TempleLive is closely monitoring the communications and recommendations from the Sedgwick County Board of Health regarding COVID-19. The board has recommended masks for everyone when indoors. The most current specific recommendations of the SCBH are as follows:

  • Vaccinations for anyone eligible including those aged 12 and older as soon as possible.
  • Follow the CDC recommendation regarding the wearing of masks or face coverings. These recommendations include anyone not fully vaccinated and aged 2 or older, wear a mask in indoor public spaces. Additionally, in areas of substantial or high transmission (including Sedgwick County) consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings or for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.
  • For individuals that are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wearing a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission (including Sedgwick County).

TempleLive suggests everyone to follow these recommendations based on their personal heath needs and preferences.

Please be aware that these recommendations may change at any time. We will update this notice and our procedures as needed.
