According to the CDC's guidance for the next eight weeks, it is recommended that organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. The Saline County Health Department is in support of this guidance.

Since it is likely that the attendance at the City of Salina study session scheduled for Monday, March 16 at 1:30 p.m., could exceed 50, it has been has been canceled. The City Commission meeting at 4 p.m. will still take place in Room 107 and attendance is not anticipated to exceed 50.
