As of Monday afternoon, local hospitals reported 311 medical beds were available and 88 patients were hospitalized with COVID-19, said a Monday press release. Of the 363 ventilators available to area hospitals, 106 were in use, including 17 for confirmed COVID-19 patients.

Everyone should assume that COVID-19 is present in all our communities and conduct themselves accordingly.

The symptoms of COVID-19 may include a fever, cough, sore throat, severe fatigue, loss of taste and smell or difficulty breathing. In most cases, a person will have more than one of these symptoms. Anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms or develops symptoms should contact their health care provider and tell them how they are feeling and any possible history of exposure. Please call ahead before you go to the doctor’s office or an emergency room.

Test Nebraska is here and 3RPHD is encouraging more individuals to seek testing and help identify cases, predict and give employers and the public reassurance that those who have COVID-19 know it and are staying home.
