LINCOLN – This afternoon, Governor Pete Ricketts announced that the State will relax its directed health measures (DHMs) in three additional local health departments as of May 11, 2020. These are the Lincoln/Lancaster County, West Central, and Three Rivers health districts.
The Governor also reminded Nebraskans to visit TestNebraska.com to fill out the simple, 5-minute health assessment. These assessments are helping the State to determine where to deploy testing resources.
Tony Green, Interim Director of the Division of Developmental Disabilities for the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, joined the Governor at today's press briefing. He outlined temporary changes to the State's provision of Home and Community Based Services for people with disabilities. These modifications have been made in response to the pandemic and will remain in place throughout the duration of the COVID-19 state of emergency.
