COVID-19

The South Heartland District Health Department area (Webster, Nuckolls, Clay, and Adams Counties in Nebraska) has reported at least 6 positive cases of COVID-19, 3 of which are believed to be community spread. This means that Webster County is under a directed health measure until at least May 12th. A directed health measure means restaurants and bars can only do takeout, curbside or delivery and that there is now an enforceable order limiting gatherings to 10 people or less. As of 6:30pm on Wednesday, April 1st Nebraska has 214 cases and 5 deaths. Kansas has 482 cases and 10 deaths. Kansas is also under a stay at home directive while 41 counties in Nebraska (including Webster) are under a directed health measure. Travel to Red Cloud for anything other than work is not recommended at this time. We will update this page daily.

Due to heightened concerns surrounding COVID-19, the City of Red Cloud is taking precautions to best protect the health, safety, and welfare of the community. Effective immediately, the City Hall and the Community Center will be closed through at least April 7th.
