OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Disability Rights Nebraska announced Wednesday that they filed a federal complaint against the state due to the inaccessibility of the COVID-19 TestNebraska program.
According to a press release, the complaint is because the program currently requires the ability to access and use the internet and the ability to drive to a testing site.
“For months, Disability Rights Nebraska and other advocates have been calling for the state to create a plan for Nebraskans who cannot drive,” said Eric Evans, CEO of Disability Rights Nebraska.
The Center for Public Representation, a national disability legal advocacy organization, and The Arc, a national nonprofit protecting and promoting the rights of those with disabilities, joined in filing the complaint.
