A message from Douglas County Commissioner Clare Duda:

We know many of our residents are living in extremely difficult and unsettling times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have heard from you, and we are working to address all of your concerns.

I want to assure you that the leaders in our community are working together to ease the impact of this outbreak. I have been so impressed with the cooperation behind-the-scenes between all entities. Of course, this is new territory for everyone.

I hope you find comfort in knowing that Douglas County works year-round to prepare for these types of crisis situations. The employees of the Douglas County Health Department and the Douglas County Emergency Management Agency are working hard to protect the health and safety of more than a half-million people in Eastern Nebraska. And their service has been exemplary.

Our No. 1 priority is you, our residents. If you need additional assistance, please contact 402-444-7000.

Thanks for the opportunity to serve you. We work for you!
