Johnson County says church gathering size restrictions still in effect after clarification from state

Johnson County says its 10-person limit on the size of gatherings still applies to churches after receiving a clarification document from the state. Johnson County churches, like St. Ann Catholic Church in Prairie Village, have been working to organize ways for members to participate in worship services via the internet and resources that can be used at home.

The 10-person limit on gathering sizes will still apply to religious services, Johnson County officials said Friday night after receiving clarification from the governor’s office.
