Nemaha Co rescinds face mask order
05/13/2021

(KMZA)--Wearing a face mask to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 is no longer " strongly recommended” in Nemaha County.

 The Nemaha County Commission voted Monday to rescind the public health order, which had been in place since January.  Commissioner Dylan Keim made the motion, which was unanimously approved by the commission.  

The commission took the action after an hour-long zoom meeting with County Health Officer Jane Sunderland and several Sabetha doctors.  Sunderland said she still supported the mask recommendation, even though the COVID numbers in the county are trending down.

 As of Tuesday, there were three active cases in the county and no hospitalizations.
