LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Officials with Bryan Health in Lincoln provided an update Thursday on their COVID-19 hospitalizations, which includes over 60 unvaccinated people.

"In one way, we've been through it, so it's gonna be easier to fire some of these other things up. I think we are in a very different situation because of everything you've heard. How rapidly moving and virulent the delta virus is and the staffing concerns make the situation a little bit more tenuous," said Bryan Health VP and CDO Bob Ravenscroft.
