A new public emergency health order went into effect at midnight.
The order makes the curfew for local bars mandatory. The county said several bars, like some of the establishments in Old Town, actually ended up staying open past the 11:00pm curfew this past weekend because they thought it was voluntary.
The county made it very clear to bar owners today that it's not an option.
FOX Kansas News reporter Hannah Baker has the details in the video posted above.
