Sarpy County, multiple cities working together to slow spread of COVID-19

Sarpy County, Bellevue, Gretna, La Vista, Papillion, Plattsmouth and Springfield are working together to slow the spread of COVID-19 through regular multi-jurisdictional teleconference meetings. The meetings allow the jurisdictions to share knowledge and expertise and to implement consistent policies and strategies related state and national guidance for curbing COVID-19.

Following guidance from Governor Pete Ricketts, the Centers for Disease Control and the Sarpy/Cass Department of Health, the chief elected officials from these jurisdictions strongly recommend that all public gatherings and events should be limited to 10 people or less.

This recommendation applies to all restaurants and bars within these jurisdictions. With the St. Patrick’s Day holiday today, and in the interest of limiting the spread of the COVID-19, it is vital the public observes this recommendation.

All entities involved understand the financial hardship this will put on our business community, but at this time our priority is the safety and health of all our residents.

The multi-jurisdictional group will continue to meet as needed to ensure consistent response to COVID-19 from the neighboring entities.
