KGS Public Offices Open but Closed to Walk-ins, COVID-19 Prevention Measures

University of Kansas (KU) leaders have been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19. They know that some members of the KU community have been in areas with reported cases, and we don't expect to be immune from this virus. KU has a strong team that is assessing conditions regionally and across the nation and making recommendations. The Kansas Geological Survey (KGS) is following KU guidelines.
