Coronavirus

Nebraska Gov. Ricketts in Virus Quarantine

November 10, 2020

OMAHA, Neb. — Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts and first lady Susanne Shore have gone into quarantine after both were exposed to a person with the coronavirus.

Ricketts spokesman Taylor Gage says Ricketts and Shore had dinner outside with three other people on Sunday night. One of the people who was with them tested positive for the coronavirus on Monday.

Gage says Ricketts and Shore will quarantine for 14 days. Neither is showing any symptoms, and both will get tested “at the appropriate time,” Gage says.

The Republican governor will remotely host his scheduled Tuesday and Thursday coronavirus news briefings.

Nebraska has had a recent record-setting surge in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations, prompting Ricketts to reimpose some of the public health mandates that were lifted in September. Some Nebraska medical officials have said those steps aren’t enough, and they’re concerned growing caseloads will soon overwhelm the state’s hospitals.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
