LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Tuesday, Bryan Health reported their highest number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients since June 1.

Currently, they report 31 hospitalized individuals, 15 of which are from Lancaster County. Five of these individuals are on ventilators.

Bryan Health Vice President Bob Ravencroft said the increase is likely due to college students coming back to Lincoln and the affects of holiday weekends.
