North Central District Health Department (NCDHD) has been made aware of 16 additional cases across the district: 5-Holt, 5-Knox, 3- Antelope, 1-Brown, 1-Boyd, 1-Pierce.

On Tuesday’s each week, NCDHD reports out recovery numbers on positive cases throughout the district. NCDHD would like to make district residents aware that due to an increase in positive cases, additional staff assisting influenza vaccine clinics and Test Nebraska clinics to serve our communities, we are unable to report that data today. NCDHD is aware that we do have recoveries to report and will report recovery counts yet this week. We appreciate the patience and understanding of our district for the time and personnel resources it takes to conduct case investigations, contact tracing, case follow-up to determine recoveries, and communicate this data out to our communities.
