Here are some things to keep in mind as you make plans. The info below is based on the new Directed Health Measures, and NE Department of Health and Human Services Travel Guidance.

Travelers arriving from out of state should self-quarantine and self-monitor for 14 days. If your guests are staying less than 14 days in Nebraska, they should self-quarantine and self-monitor for the duration of their stay.

As a resident of Nebraska, if you return from out-of-state travel, you should self-quarantine and self-monitor for 14 days.

If you host an event, the gathering size should be 10 or less people. Continue to encourage 6 feet distance between the different family units.

Have hand sanitizer available and clean regularly high touch surfaces.
