Today I’ve released “COVID-19 and State Government Services: Questions and Answers for Nebraskans” The document contains fifty frequently asked questions about COVID-19 and state government services, along with answers and resources.

This guide is a resource for Nebraskans seeking information about state government services and COVID-19. We are grateful to the state employees and agencies working to serve Nebraskans at this difficult time. This guide provides simple answers to questions we’ve received in our office and resources for people in District #29 and across the state.

If you have any questions or need assistance during this time, please email me at kbolz@leg.ne.gov and my office will be happy to assist you.
