NDP Chair Jane Kleeb issued the following statement today on Gov. Pete Ricketts going into quarantine for possible exposure to COVID-19:
“Gov. Ricketts, like Trump, has failed in his duty to — first and foremost — protect Nebraskans from this pandemic. He needs to follow Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, who declared a state of emergency and issued a mandate for all residents to wear masks in public until further notice.
“Nebraska COVID-19 cases are soaring and our hospitals are dangerously close to reaching capacity. This is failed leadership. His office even stooped to attacking several doctors on social media for doing their duty to save lives.”
