The Southeast District Health Department (SEDHD) has received the results from the National Guard testing event held in Tecumseh on April 24. A total of 67 individuals were tested, two of which were confirmed as positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

The two cases include a man and a woman, both in their sixties and residents of Johnson County.

Both individuals are reportedly self-isolated.

Contact investigations are in progress. All identified close contacts will be asked to self-quarantine and be actively monitored by public health officials for fever and symptoms of respiratory disease.

The SEDHD thanks the Nebraska National Guard for their assistance and efforts in conducting COVID-19 testing within the district and throughout the state.
