Directed Health Measures and Other Guidance
Governor Ricketts' Plan to Preserve Hospital Capacity
On Friday, November 13, Governor Pete Ricketts shared his plan for protecting hospital capacity as COVID-19 hospitalizations increase across Nebraska. The chart below outlines the measures that will be taken when the percent of COVID-19 inpatients reaches a certain level. For example, if statewide, 10% of hospital beds are occupied by COVID-19 patients, the restrictions under the blue/10% tab will be in effect. Plans will be in effect early in the week of November 15 and will last until further notice.
All Nebraska counties are currently in Phase 3.1 of the Directed Health Measures. These have been modified, and the modifications will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. November 11, 2020. These are statewide DHMs and modifications; all Nebraska counties are under these measures.
