New cases of COVID in both Douglas County and Nebraska as a whole were down last week to levels seen last summer. "We are going in the right direction," County Health Director Adi Pour said.
Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts received his first dose of the COVID vaccine at Nebraska Medicine. "At the end of the day, this is how we all get through the pandemic," Ricketts said.

Douglas County could be vaccinating people 16 and older by mid-April, according to the latest timetable on the Douglas County Health Department's website.
As of Sunday, 247,067 Nebraskans had been fully vaccinated, almost 17% of the state's 18-and-older population.
You are fully vaccinated 2 weeks after receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, or 2 weeks after receiving the second dose from Pfizer or Moderna.

The findings, published in JAMA Pediatrics, add to the body of evidence linking failure to vaccinate with the spread of the highly infectious and potentially fatal disease.
We are all about being inclusive and we love to entertain other children, but I don’t want parents to bring their kids to our house if they have chosen not to vaccinate.
