Wichita eagle logo Wichita eagle 10/22/2020 By Jason Tidd, The Wichita Eagle

State public health officials named more coronavirus outbreaks on Wednesday as they reported 38 more COVID-19 deaths connected to clusters in the past week.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s weekly list of active outbreaks identified 49 of 235 active cluster locations. The state experienced 40 new clusters in the past week.

Clusters are generally defined as two or more cases of COVID-19 with a common place and time, but KDHE only names locations with five or more cases within the current two-week period. Home-based daycares and private events are excluded due to privacy concerns.

Because of that criteria, KDHE did not identify active clusters at 63 nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, 33 private businesses including meatpacking plants, 21 schools, 17 colleges or universities, 14 private events, eight health care facilities, seven sports teams or events, seven government offices, six correctional facilities, four group living situations, three religious gatherings, two daycares and one bar or restaurant.

More information is available at the health department’s dashboard at
