Statewide COVID-19 Information Line Opens for Residents

As Nebraska continues to adjust to a new normal as a result of the impacts of COVID-19 on the state, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has set up a coronavirus (COVID-19) information line that will allow residents to get answers to general questions and receive information on resources available. 

That number is: 402-552-6645; hours of operation are 8 a.m.-8 p.m. CST, 7 days a week.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and its public health partners continue to closely track the unfolding outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and anticipate its impact on Nebraska and its health care systems.

First, Nebraskans can help protect themselves from COVID-19 and other respiratory infections by:

  • Staying home if you are sick and avoiding close contact with those who are sick.
  • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Here are some of the latest tools and resources to help everyone plan ahead.

Stay informed. DHHS will continue to update Nebraskans through our website http://www.dhhs.ne.gov/coronavirus and on Facebook and Twitter as we have new information. Your local health department is also a good resource for information.
