Jun 11, 2020

There are now more than 16-thousand COVID-19 cases in Nebraska.  One-hundred-42 new cases were confirmed yesterday bringing the statewide total to 16-thousand-25.  There have been 195 COVID-19 deaths in Nebraska.  Douglas County has seen the most cases in the state with 52-hundred-45. A sixth Nebraska National Guard soldier has tested positive for COVID-19.  Officials say all six soldiers who tested positive for the virus were part of last week's effort to help law enforcement during protests in Omaha and Lincoln.  The six infected soldiers are in isolation at home, and dozens of other guard members who had contact with them are in self-quarantine for 14 days.
