Comeback KC

Test. Track. Triumph.

Kansas City never quits. No matter the odds we always find a way to come together and overcome. Today is no different. Let's bring KC back the right way — safely and responsibly — to ensure that we come back better and stronger than ever.

Test

With enough testing, we can understand the full extent of the pandemic in our region. That's why we are making more test kits available than ever before.

Track

Through apps built with your privacy in mind, our contact tracing team can help those sick with COVID-19 identify those they may have affected so they can be tested, too.

Triumph

If we test and track, we can make sure that only sick people have to self-isolate. We can ease social distancing restrictions and help Kansas City come back better than before.

Health Inequities

The COVID-19 pandemic has not impacted all communities in our region equally. The Black, Latino/Hispanic and Native communities have shouldered an undue burden in these challenging times. Comeback KC is committed to providing testing, tracking, and support resources to the communities that need them the most. As we reopen and rebuild our economy, we can't just go back to normal, we have to take this opportunity to build a better, fairer Kansas City.

  • About 44% of KCMO's COVID-19 cases are Black, but the Black population makes up just 30% of the population
  • In Wyandotte County, Black people represent 53% of the COVID-19 deaths but just 23% of the population
  • Nationally, Black and Latino/Hispanic populations are dying at higher rates than their white neighbors
  • The Navajo Nation alone has experienced the 3rd highest infection rate outside of New York and New Jersey
