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 6pm on Monday, April 6th Nebraska has 412 cases and 8 deaths. Kansas has 845 cases and 25 deaths. Kansas is also under a stay at home directive while all 93 counties in Nebraska are under a directed health measure. Travel to Red Cloud for anything other than work is not recommended at this time.
