Nebraska’s COVID-19 Response in Data

A collection of different metrics to see how the state is faring against the pandemic

Daily Cases

While many states are seeing an increase in cases following reopenings, Nebraska’s cases are still trending downward.

Daily Testing

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.
