Salons. Grocery stores. Thousands of complaints against Kansas City businesses related to COVID-19.

With shifting public health orders to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, local businesses in Kansas City have had to adapt to requirements like a mask order and limitations on capacity. For the businesses that don’t always get it right, residents can make a complaint to the city.

And they have — by the thousands.

According to records requested by The Beacon, the city of Kansas City, Missouri, has received over 3,000 complaints about businesses failing to comply with the city’s COVID-19 health orders since March. Businesses range from grocery stores to golf courses to salons.
