Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas announced the plan to reopen Kansas City businesses after COVID-19 closures, The Kansas City Star reports. This includes a “soft opening” for some nonessential businesses on May 6, as well as the scheduled reopening of all businesses on May 15.
Lucas also set a “10-10-10” rule in place for all businesses for the foreseeable future.
The rule states that they must operate at 10% capacity or have 10 people in the building, whichever is greater. It also says that customers who are in a businesses for more than 10 minutes must register their name and contact information.
Such registration will help officials trace exposure if a business happens to become a coronavirus hotspot, Lucas said.
Rules are still being drafted for gyms, bars and museums ahead of their May 15 reopening.
