KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) -Two Rivers Public Health Department will be closed Monday, June 21st in observance of Juneteenth. Offices will be closed to the public but essential personnel will still be working.

The observance will be Monday following announcements of Federal and the State of Nebraska offices closing. TRPHD recognizes the significance of events occurring June 19, 1865 when Union troops arrived in Texas and announced that the 250,000 remaining enslaved people within the state were free — a declaration that spurred the holiday we now know as Juneteenth

Those scheduled for vaccination on Monday will be vaccinated Tuesday, June 22nd.
