Available Resources for Fighting the Coronavirus (Covid-19) in District 3

As you know, the Nebraska Legislative session has been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. While this is a difficult and uneasy time, I want you to know there are resources out there to help.

As the shutdown goes on longer than anyone hoped it can be tempting to relax our vigilance, but we have to fight that urge. It is critical that we do not let down our guard until the health experts tell us it is safe to relax these restrictions.

In addition to the resources listed here, my office continues to work while practicing social distancing. Please do not hesitate to call my office or reach out directly to me if I can be of any assistance to you.
