Norovirus Outbreaks in Nebraska Reported to DHHS

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services received several reports of norovirus outbreaks in long-term care facilities within the last several weeks. When there are outbreaks in facilities, it means norovirus is likely circulating in communities as well.

Norovirus spreads quickly and easily. It can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. People may also experience stomach cramps, fever and head or body aches. Norovirus infections are transmitted in many ways including:

People with diarrhea or vomiting handling and preparing food.

Direct contact with an infected person, such as through sharing food or shaking hands.

Hand-to-mouth transfer after touching contaminated surfaces or objects.

Airborne droplets of vomit.

Illness usually starts 12-48 hours after exposure and lasts one to three days. Treatment is supportive therapy for dehydration.

Senators debate casinos, BPA, motorcycle helmets

By Danae Lenz, Nebraska News Service

LINCOLN--The Nebraska Legislature debated and heard testimony on a variety of topics this week, including legalizing casino gambling and industrial hemp, regulating BPA products, repealing the motorcycle helmet law and providing assistance for low-performing schools, among others. Here are some highlights.

LR416CA, introduced by Wilber Sen. Russ Karpisek, would allow a local government to put a measure on the ballot that would allow casinos within that jurisdiction. Karpisek said Nebraska is losing revenue to other states that could be used help some of the state's budget woes. The General Affairs Committee heard testimony on the bill Wednesday and took no immediate action on it.

Random Acts of Kindness

Photo caption: Karli Scherling and Breanna Chapman show off their writings for the paper.

February is always a great time to stop and take stock of all of the many blessings that we have received. Some of our blessings are small and some of the blessings we have received are quite large. The week of February 10 through 16 is Random Act of Kindness week across the nation. Tri County Schools will be educating all students on what this concept means.
