Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts says local governments won’t receive federal coronavirus relief funding if they require face masks inside government offices:

OC…….do that :07

He was responding to a question about the required use of facemasks in Dakota County buildings.

A spokesperson for the governor said Ricketts encourages people to wear a mask, but he doesn’t believe failure to wear one should be the basis for denying access to taxpayer services.

Lincoln city officials planned to require all visitors to wear a mask inside the City-County buildings, but those rules no longer apply after Ricketts’ threat.
