Clay Co. moves into Phase 3 of DHM

On June 22, Nebraska counties moved into Phase III of the Directed Health Measure changes, according to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

The new guidelines relaxed on sports attendance, elective surgeries, and include changes to gatherings at local bars and restaurants and at weddings/funerals, among other updates.

Statewide changes for all 93 counties included fan attendance for youth and school games to the same limit as gatherings—75 percent of rated occupancy not to exceed 10,000—and will no longer be limited to only household members.

Contact team sports are also allowed to begin practices and host games on July 1.
