At 11:50 p.m. on July 30, 2021 Nebraska Executive Order No. 20-15 expired. This order allowed Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department (and all local health departments) to “disclose specific data to the public, in a good faith effort to prevent and lessen a serious and imminent threat to the health or safety of a person or the public arising from or related to COVID-19.”
With this order in place, ELVPHD was allowed to release county-level data on testing numbers, positive case counts, etc. The expiration of this Executive Order prevents ELVPHD from releasing this data at a county-level for any county with a population of less than 20,000. Currently, Madison County is the only county in the ELVPHD district with a population of more than 20,000. This necessitates a change in what and how we report data to you, our constituents.
Above, you will find the 14-day case rates for the ELVPHD district. The district data includes all four counties of Madison, Stanton, Cuming and Burt; Madison County information is also shown separately. We are also posting the percent of fully vaccinated individuals (all ages), the weekly positive case count for the district and for Madison County and cumulative deaths for our district.

Throughout this pandemic, ELVPHD has worked hard to be transparent and provide all data for which we had access. We regret this change in reporting, however we are required to follow strict state law in order to protect the identity and personal health information of all residents living within our district. We will not be able to release county-wide data for any county other than Madison, even if you call our office. We appreciate your patience as we make this change in our data reporting.
The CDC does provide detailed county-level case counts for the ELVPHD district at this time. However, they do have a website where a lot of information can be found. Please know there is a bit of a lag in the local data getting to the CDC, and there are issues with the reporting that the State of Nebraska has been able to do with the CDC, so this may not show real-time information for our health district.
