OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — On Wednesday, the Douglas County Health Department (DCHD) reported just 52 new COVID-19 infections in the community.

While this sounds like great news, DCHD said many test facilities were operating on Tuesday at “reduced hours due to the winter storm” so the numbers may be a bit off.

With the new cases, the community now stands at 60,230 since the pandemic began.

Two more deaths were also reported for a total of 586 to date. The deaths include “two men in the 60s and a man over the age of 75.”

The number of residents who have recovered from the virus is now up to 45,686.
