12:36 AM · May 29, 2020

As of 12:00 pm today, there is ONE new case of COVID-19 in Douglas County. The total number of positive cases in Douglas County is now at 26. Testing continues, as DPHN has been holding 2-3 clinics a week and hospitals, urgent cares and clinics continue to test. Twenty-six people have tested positive in the county and twenty-three of those twenty-six have recovered. DPHN defines recovery as an end to all symptoms after a positive test for COVID-19. “Although our cases have been fairly steady for several weeks, we expected to have new cases in Douglas County. In addition to our regular testing clinics, epidemiological contact tracing and isolation support for our positive cases, we have also been spending the last several weeks preparing for a possible surge. We are more prepared now than we were at the beginning of this pandemic and will continue to do the vital and important public health work of providing locally relevant correct information, testing, and epidemiology investigations.” Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer DPHN continues their epidemiologic investigations, identifying individuals who may have had close contact with individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19, advising and supporting quarantine. The majority of the individuals who have tested positive earlier have now recovered. The first positive COVID-19 case in Douglas County was announced on March 8, 2020. Thanks to the great work that Douglas County has done social distancing and staying home, we’ve had 26 cases in over 80 days.
