OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Douglas County Health Director Dr. Lindsay Huse provided an update on the coronavirus pandemic at Tuesday's Board of Commissioners meeting.

"If you look at this chart here, the one to the right that's very jagged. You will see that currently, our hospitalizations are higher, our occupancy rate is higher than what we saw at the peak of our previous increase. And, so this is something that we're really worried about and really trying to keep our eye on," Douglas County Health Director Dr. Lindsay Huse told commissioners.
