In a recent release from the Governor’s office, it was announced that there is a suspension of disconnecting service for Kansas residents. This comes after a State of Emergency was declared in both Kansas and nationally. This suspension will take effect immediately and continue through May 1st, however, this stay can be extended as needed with the growth of COVID-19 cases. The Governor claimed that this was to alleviate any financial hardship experienced due to closures from the virus and is directly in line with putting the interests of public health first. This applies to all utilities and internet shut offs not regulated by KCC.

Additionally, KCC has extended cold weather rule through April 15 and the City of Topeka has water shutoff moratorium through April 15.
