Nebraska Governor Rescinds Temporary Elective Surgeries Ban

Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts rescinds the Directed Health Measure that had temporarily suspended inpatient Class D and Class E elective surgeries for all Acute Care, Critical Care, and Children’s Hospitals in Nebraska.

The D-H-M ends at 11:59 Thursday night allowing Class D and Class E elective surgeries to resume Friday.

The Governor also announces coronavirus hospitalizations in Nebraska on the 7 day rolling average have fallen below 10% of statewide hospital bed capacity.

Updates to the Hospital Capacity Dashboard will return to a weekly schedule as long as Covid-19 hospitalizations remain below the 10% capacity threshold.

The dashboard will be updated once per week on Wednesdays and will no longer include demographic data and county-specific statistics.
