Wichita Mayor, 3 Council Members Self-Quarantine

TOPEKA (AP) — Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple and three City Council members have decided to quarantine themselves “out of an abundance of caution” after being told two people at a conference they attended last week had the coronavirus. Whipple and council members Becky Tuttle, James Clendenin and Brandon Johnson attended the National League of Cities conference in Washington D.C. The group informed attendees on Tuesday that the two people who tested positive for the virus were active participants at the conference.
