While many states are seeing an increase in cases following reopenings, Nebraska’s cases are still trending downward.
In April, Gov. Pete Ricketts set out to test 3,000 people a day by May. The state missed that mark. By July only a handful of days broke that threshold.
Positive Test Rates
A low positive test rate is a mark that the state is testing everyone, not just the sick, to understand whether the virus is hiding in its communities undetected. The World Health Organization recommends a 5% positivity rate.
