WAYNE — The Northeast Nebraska Public Health Dept. has identified two more cases of COVID-19 in Cedar County.
Cedar County now has four positive cases of coronavirus. The first two positive cases were reported Monday.
NEPHD Director Julie Rother said public health investigations are in process, and close contacts are being identified and contacted to ensure quarantine and isolation measures are being taken.
She said one case appears to be community spread meaning the source of that person’s exposure cannot be identified (no travel, no close contact of a positive case).
As of Wednesday, April 29, there have been 246 COVID-19 tests reported for people living in the NNPHD Health District of Cedar, Dixon, Thurston and Wayne Counties. The results of these tests includes 19 positive cases (Cedar - 4, Dixon - 9, Thurston - 4, and Wayne County - 2), 200 negative tests, and 27 tests currently pending results.
