Law enforcement guidelines for social distancing and essential travel have been developed by Leavenworth County.

“We know this is a stressful time, and we are all working together. But as the number of local infections continues to rise, law enforcement needs to make sure people are following the rules so we can stop the spread sooner instead of later.” -Leavenworth County Undersheriff Jim Sherley

“When the weather is nice, get outside. While we still need to practice social distancing, we can still enjoy the things that only nature can provide.” - Leavenworth County Public Health Officer Jamie Miller
