OC……..MINDFUL OF AS WELL. ;17

RICKETTS ALSO REAFFIRMED THAT HE WILL NOT ISSUE A MASK MANDATE IN NEBRASKA, BUT HE HOPES PEOPLE WILL WEAR THEM AND HAS NO PROBLEM IF SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES WANT STUDENTS TO WEAR ONE:

OC……….TRYING TO DO. :12

THE GOVERNOR WILL NOT ISSUE A STATEWIDE MASK MANDATE, BECAUSE CONDITIONS DIFFER FROM COUNTY TO COUNTY IN NEBRASKA:

OC……….RIGHT TO ME. :14
