Clay County Recovery Plan

Please see the attached guidance for the official Clay County COVID-19 Recovery Plan . We hope this will provide more insight into what this gradual process will look like for our community and provide guidance to businesses and individuals. More graphics and tools will be provided throughout the day on our website at .

A Guide for Responsible Re-Entry to the Workplace

As the Greater Kansas City business community adjusts day-to-day operations in response to COVID-19, we must balance the need to maintain our region’s economy with the protection of our community’s health. The Safe Return KC Guide provides a roadmap for organizations of all types across the region to use as we re-open our workplaces, while considering the public health needs of our workforce, stakeholders, customers and community.

COVID-19 Testing

Clay County Public Health Center is now offering free, drive-thru COVID-19 testing for Clay County residents. Any resident, whether they have symptoms or not, is welcome to request an appointment by filling out the testing questionnaire on our website at However, we do have a limited number of tests so not everyone who fills out the questionnaire will be able to be scheduled for an appointment.
Member Announcements & Events
Each year the Kearney School District celebrates their exceptional staff through the District Awards Program. Each building nominates two exceptional staff members, one for Teacher of the Year and the other for Support Employee of the Year . A committee narrows it down to 6 finalists, and ultimately one in each category is selected as the winner for the year. 
If you would like to help honor these exceptional staff members with something from your business (examples can be gift cards, giveaways, coupons and more), please bring your items to the Kearney Chamber office, located at 455 Sam Barr Dr., Suite 103, on MONDAY, MAY 4 between 1-4pm (knock on the door and we will come greet you) .

You can determine if you prefer to give to all 16 nominees, the 6 finalists or just the 2 winners. We really just want to show how much we appreciate all the hard work these staff members do for the kiddos of this district. We appreciate anything you can provide to show your support. Thank you!
Businesses and community members, want to help a local senior really celebrate? A new Facebook group ADOPT a Kearney Bulldog Senior 2020 has been started that lets you adopt a KHS graduating senior and make their quarantine graduation extra special by spoiling them rotten. Check it out and help them really celebrate this life milestone.

Parents of KHS Graduating Seniors, if you haven't already nominated your student, join the group and tell us all about them.
