Dodge County has three additional cases for a total of 720 while Saunders County has one more case for a total of 97. There are 888 cases in the 3RPHD district.

As of Friday afternoon, local hospitals reported 231 medical beds were available and 66 patients were hospitalized with COVID-19. Of the 363 ventilators available to area hospitals, 129 were in use, including 16 for confirmed COVID-19 patients.

“Please stay home if you are sick or if you have been around someone who is COVID-19 positive — this will help us contain the spread of COVID-19”, said Terra Uhing, Three Rivers Public Health Department’s executive director.

Uhing added that you can spread COVID-19 even if you don’t feel that sick. You can pass the disease to someone else before you have symptoms, and even if you never develop any symptoms at all.
