First Saline County case reported on April 14, 2020

The City of Crete received information April 16 of the first two confirmed cases of COVID-19 involving a Crete resident and a person who works in Crete, but lives elsewhere in Saline County, bringing the total cases in the county to three. The first Saline County case was reported on April 14.

City officials are deeply concerned with the health of residents during this situation and strongly believe if people continue to follow current public health guidelines and restrictions, together, they can manage the risks prudently and minimize the affects of this virus on the community.

The City has been and will continue taking appropriate steps at the local government level as advised by public health authorities and state officials to minimize the spread of this outbreak. They have been in contact with relevant agencies, including Public Health Solutions and Governor Pete Ricketts' office since early March and began taking action regarding city services and programs at that time.

Together, through the basic efforts of following good hygiene practices, proper disinfection, appropriate social distancing, discretionary trips away from home, and self-isolation for individuals exposed to or who have tested positive, the community can slow the spread.
