Jackson County, Missouri has released a modified Phase 1 of the Recovery Plan to allow gyms and fitness centers and places of worship to open with occupancy limits and social distancing guidelines.
These changes were recommended by the mayors of Eastern Jackson County, including Mayor Carson Ross.
“The united mayors of Jackson County did not give up on our constituents and we consistently and cohesively fought to ensure these changes were put in place in Phase 1. I am pleased to announce our work was successful and fitness centers and places of worship are now included,” said Mayor Carson Ross.
According to the County’s revised plan, gyms and fitness centers will be allowed to open May 18 with occupancy limits. This will include the fitness center portion of the Blue Springs Fieldhouse.
Blue Springs Parks staff will ensure the social distancing guidelines and occupancy limits set forth in the Jackson County plan are met. The city will be releasing more details on the opening of the Fieldhouse, membership information, and social distancing guidelines tomorrow, Friday, May 15.
Additionally, the changes to the Jackson County Recovery Plan will also allow places of worship to open with the same occupancy limits as nonessential businesses. The Jackson County Health Department encourages the use of drive-in and online services whenever possible, especially for high risk populations.
