  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Clean and disinfect.
  • Monitor your health daily.   

*Smith County has opted out of Governor Laura Kelly’s facemask mandate, and as a result, KLA will not require facemasks to attend this field day, but KLA highly encourages attendees to wear a mask according to the CDC guidelines above.  Masks will be available.
