LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts thanked President Trump on Saturday for approving the state's request for federal disaster assistance during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Thank you to President Trump for approving Nebraska’s disaster request,” said Gov. Ricketts in a statement. “Nebraskans are coming together to win the war against the virus, and this declaration will help our state fulfilling that mission.

Everyone should work, go home, and shop once a week.”
