Most of Nebraska, with the exception of Lancaster County is now in phase four of directed health measures. This means outdoor venues will be able to go to 100% of their capacity, while indoor venues can go to 75% of capacity. On Monday, Governor Ricketts talked about what comes after. "So, the next step after Phase 4 would be no directed health measures, so going back completely to no restrictions, the way we were pre-pandemic; and getting there will be difficult to predict. It will be something when we feel the emergency has ended that's when we will lift those restrictions," Ricketts said. Ricketts said every county has been given state approval to go to phase 4, but the Lancaster County Health Department has chosen to stay in phase 3. He is encouraging people to continue to wear masks and physically distance.
