Here is a sampling of social media comments about stories from across the state:
The Leavenworth Times Facebook: Update on COVID-19 cases in Leavenworth County
Carol Krueger: Stop already!!!
Veronica Doane (Carol Krueger): why don’t you stop already. You people are so insensitive to the ones that’s have lost someone to a virus that could have been slowed down
Randy Lewis: Again the media is up to brainwashing tactics, did this person die of Covid or die with Covid there is a huge difference, I don't give a damn what the numbers say, for those of you that don't know numbers can be manipulated to make you believe anything. And don't tell me how insensitive I am, I work with Covid patients everyday since it all started. Test weekly and thank God I have been negative every week.
Jon Hall (Randy Lewis): --- unlike you I was POSITIVE in May --- I know damn well the numbers are real ...
Topeka Capital-Journal Facebook: Kobach's pushes COVID-19 sanitizing
Ellen Byers: Ever the sketchy snake oil salesman
Tanya Renee Tingle: Who cares what he is doing
Allie Lockwood: I'm going to wait until I see the infomercial.
Deb Rishel: Looks like a commercial refrigerator.
Frank D. Taff: Kobach, a door-to-door salesman. There is a god.
Bill Barnes: People love to pile on.
Hutchinson News Facebook: City OKs code to allow enforcement of mask rule if county adopts one
Justin Ray: If this is true, which I doubt any council member would admit to this political suicide, it would be suicide to our town a lot of smaller towns come here to shop. With that code they will go else where.
Cindy Gough Montgomery: We should’ve had a national mask mandate since day 1. We wouldn’t still be in this mess if so
Linda Thomas (Cindy Gough Montgomery): but what about the controversy that says masks are unhealthy.
Matt Whiteford: As infrequently as I need to wear one, it’s certainly not going to hurt me. My railroad employer required much more safety equipment as a condition of employment.
Gil Lobdell: The mask is not working and not because people wearing wrong it will over in November
DebbienSteve Howard: Not that tough to follow rules.. posted on doors of businesses
James Chambers: This ain't some of their third world country where communist country rules this is America land of the free you are not going to give me a misdemeanor ticket for not wearing a mask
Garden City Telegram Facebook: Trump, first lady test positive for COVID-19
Jeff Reinert: Nope, Melania. It may be a Hoax he put out in despiration.
Chris McClure: Thoughts and prayers. I wish there was a font for sarcasm
