According to Dr. Dennis Shipp, superintendent of Bertrand Community School, as of April 1, the Two River’s Health Department has listed the school district under the “Directed Health Measures” edict. Because of this, only Bertrand School ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL will be allowed into the Bertrand Community School building.

In addition, a case of coronovirus in Buffalo county has been identified as community-transmitted, according to Two Rivers. This means that the health officials aren’t able to trace how or where the person was infected.

Directed Health Measure have now been put in place for all counties in the Two Rivers Public Health Department which includes: Buffalo, Dawson, Franklin, Gosper, Harlan, Kearney, and Phelps counties.

This means for those counties, there will be forceable limits on public gatherings. It also requires restaurants and bars to close dining areas and move to take out service, delivery, and/or curbside services only until further notice. Schools can have staff in the buildings BUT NO STUDENTS. The measures do not apply to daycares.
