OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The State of Nebraska has announced where testing for the coronavirus can be accessed the week of June 8.

The state has also announced that it will begin phasing in all Nebraskans who want test, even those who previously applied but did not qualify.

“We want to ensure every Nebraskan knows that if they are concerned they may have been exposed, they can have the opportunity to schedule a test,” said Director of Public Health and Chief Medical Officer for the Department of Health and Human Services Dr. Gary Anthone. “The best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 is through aggressive testing and contact tracing and we continue to expand our capabilities across the state.”

Those who previously tested negative for the virus, but are showing new symptoms are encouraged to complete an updated assessment.

Testing continues to be phased in for the most highly populated counties. People aged 15 to 35 in Douglas and Sarpy counties can now schedule a test. This is in addition to the following priority categories already open for scheduling a test: first responders, health care providers, meatpacking workers, military employees, anyone working in a long-term care facility or nursing home, and anyone who has been around someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Additionally, starting today there is not limiting criteria for any individuals living in the state’s remaining 91 counties to schedule a test.
