On November 23, 2020, the Gretna city council, with the support of Mayor Timmerman, issued ordinance 2072 requiring face coverings in response to the Covid-19 pandemic during a time with a large, growing number of cases and hospital capacities tightening across Nebraska. The ordinance was set to expire at 11:59 pm on February 23rd, 2021 unless renewed, extended or terminated by subsequent ordinance.
While the Covid-19 pandemic continues, the number of cases has lessened and the capacity in Nebraska hospitals is much improved. With the improving conditions, continued roll out of the vaccinations and many businesses and organizations implementing health procedures that follow both state and federal guidelines, the Gretna city council and Mayor Evans will allow the Ordinance 2072 to expire.
We strongly support the continued following of all health measures of the CDC and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.
