Governor Pete Ricketts announced new DHMs are taking effect Wednesday, May 13.
The Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department said the new DHM for ELVPHD will be released next week and applies to Burt, Cuming, Madison, and Stanton counties.
These less restrictive DHMs will allow for the limited reopening of dine-in services at restaurants and of salons, barber shops, tattoo parlors, and massage therapy services. It will also increase the per room/space childcare limits from 10 to 15 kids (subject to the usual child-to-staff ratios).
“Most of our mass testing results have come in, and I feel comfortable with beginning the process of relaxing the Directed Health Measures in this district sooner than the original May 31st deadline,” said ELVPHD Health Director Gina Uhing. “Thank you to everyone for their contributions in helping to flatten the curve in Burt, Cuming, Stanton and Madison Counties. I ask the public to be prudent as the measures become relaxed, as we all want to continue making forward progress on the road to recovery in this area.”
