DODGE COUNTY, Neb. (KMTV) - The Three Rivers Public Health Department announced two additional cases of COVID-19 in Dodge County on Thursday.

The first case is a Dodge County man in his 60s who is self-isolating at home. This case was determined to be travel related. Contact investigations are underway and those identified as close contacts will be notified. All identified close contacts will self-quarantine and be monitored twice daily by public health officials for fever and respiratory symptoms.

The second case is a Dodge County man in his 20s who is a part-time resident and he is self-isolating at home. This case was acquired out of state and no in-state contacts were identified.

There has now been a total of six coronavirus cases in Dodge County.

"Transmission is now occurring community wide. Please protect yourself and stay home this is the only way we will flatten the curve here in Nebraska. More importantly if you are experiencing symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, fatigue, etc.) do not go to work or go out in the community as you are exposing others. This will make others sick," Three Rivers said in a press release.
