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.

Fair Housing Rights in Red Cloud

The City of Red Cloud is a supporter of Fair Housing and supports Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental and financing of dwellings based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or familial status.  TItle VIII also sets forth the enforcement mechanisms enabling U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development attorneys to bring action before administrative law judges on behalf of victims of housing discrimination; and allowing the Department of Justice to bring suit on behalf of victims in Federal district courts. Furthermore, the City supports the elimination of unlawful discriminatory practices within its jurisdictional boundaries.
