    Vaccine Tier 3 Activation


    This afternoon, Governor Parson announced that all individuals in Missouri’s Phase 1B-Tier 3 group are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine beginning Monday, March 15. This group includes all educational staff, encompassing all 3,600+ NKC Schools employees. We are committed to providing opportunities for each of our employees who elect to receive their vaccine as soon as possible.

    Through continued partnership with Truman Medical Center, NKC Schools has a comprehensive plan already in place to host on-site vaccine clinics. Access to a limited supply of vaccine doses continues to be a challenge throughout our region. We are working closely with our health partners to order and reserve an adequate supply of doses to provide for our staff. In the meantime, NKC Schools has ensured all preparations are in place to avoid any delay when supplies become available. We look forward to providing this service to all of our staff members who would like to participate.

Clay County Public Health Community Recovery Plan

  • Throughout recovery, it is incredibly important that every individual and business remember these four Recovery Essentials that will help prevent the spread of disease and protect our community:

    1. High-risk persons should continue to stay home except for essential activities. Anyone who is sick should also stay at home.
    2. Wear a face mask/covering when interacting with others outside your home.
    3. Always maintain physical distancing (six feet) from anyone you do not live with.
    4. Maintain the highest levels of cleaning and hygiene.
