Support our healthcare workers

Right now, we’re facing one of the biggest challenges our state has ever encountered. In recent weeks, coronavirus hospitalizations have been rapidly rising with many people severely ill and more deaths. There are over four times as many Nebraskans in the hospital with coronavirus now as there were at the beginning of last month. As hospitals fill with coronavirus patients, doctors and nurses are dealing with the heaviest workloads many of them have ever experienced.

With the rapid rise in hospitalizations, we’ve entered a critical phase in our war against the virus. From October 16th to November 16th, our coronavirus hospitalizations increased by nearly 20 per day. As of November 17th, we’re at 938 hospitalizations. If trends continue, our hospitals won’t have room to provide the standard of care Nebraskans deserve.
