Nebraska's Response

  • Sharing the latest guidance and information with local health departments, hospitals, health care providers, first responders and local and state labs through our extensive Health Alert Network to ensure a well-coordinated response in Nebraska.
  • Engaging in active and ongoing communication with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other state and federal partners as part of the overall national response to this emerging public health threat.
  • Reviewing and enhancing response plans to be ready for the detection of this virus in our state.
  • Facilitating confirmatory testing, isolation and monitoring of Nebraskans experiencing symptoms to identify cases as soon as possible.
  • Updating with the latest information and resources.
  • With our local health department partners, we have a system in place to track and monitor people who have contact with a confirmed case in an effort to immediately detect secondary cases and minimize the potential for ongoing, undetected, person-to-person transmission.

DHHS, local health departments, hospitals, first responders and other local, state and federal agencies have been partners in preparedness for more than 15 years. Preparedness planning and response never stops and continues to be a priority. Our goal is to protect Nebraskans and prevent the spread of disease.  ​
