To help prevent further spread of the virus, Jeremy Eschliman, Health Director, strongly urges everyone to stay home when sick, wear face masks while in the community and in the public, and ensure proper hand washing is exercised. He emphasizes the importance of mask usage in preventing the spread of the virus, especially if people are exhibiting mild, allergy-like symptoms, or are asymptomatic and don’t realize they are infected.
Eschliman reminds people that if they have tested for the virus and are awaiting results, they need to stay home until results are received.
There have been more than 510 deaths in Nebraska with 25 of those from the Two Rivers health district.
