In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Sarpy/Cass Health Department today issued a Directed Health Measure that includes directing businesses that cannot maintain a 6-foot distance to cease operations effective at 12:01 a.m. March 31.
The measure applies to massage therapy, tattoo shops, barbershops, hair/nail salons and other businesses in Sarpy and Cass Counties that cannot operate while maintaining a 6-foot distance.
“The Sarpy/Cass Health Department continues to collaborate with local and state government partners to monitor and respond to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation. Our collective priority is to ensure appropriate public health recommendations and requirements are in place to ensure our residents remain as healthy as possible,” the Health Department said in a press release.
The Directed Health Measure will remain in place until April 30, unless otherwise directed.
“Our top priority is a health and safety of our residents,” said Sarpy County Board Chairman Don Kelly. “While we understand the hardship these restrictions put on dedicated, hardworking service professionals in our community, this is the right decision to help slow the spread of the virus. We highly encourage businesses to shut down as soon as possible, as we will begin enforcing this on Tuesday.”
