JCPRD is taking a number of precautionary measures to protect our patrons, volunteers, and staff, as we continue to monitor the situation. We are working with Johnson County Government partners and referencing peer institutions to make the best decisions. We are prepared to follow all directions provided by public health agencies to mitigate the spread of any virus, including the potential cancellation of future programming for a period of time if necessary. Should that happen, we will notify patrons as quickly as possible and will maintain communication as circumstances change. Until that time, we intend to serve our patrons and our families in the best way possible while working to ensure the continued health of our community.
