Since March 20, Two Rivers has confirmed 9,290 cases of COVID-19. Of those, 8,025 are no longer symptomatic. The status of the others cannot be confirmed, Two Rivers said.

Due to maintenance issues and a system update, no updated statewide COVID-19 figures were available from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

As of Thursday morning, 213,036 doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines against COVID have been distributed, and 115,080 shots have been given to health care workers, and residents and staff at long-term care facilities. The first dose has been administered to 97,149 people; 17,931 people have received the second and final shot.

So far, 1.21 percent of Nebraska’s 1.4 million people over the age of 16 have been vaccinated, DHHS said.
