NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - The West Central District Health Department is asking for help identifying people who may have attended an event called “Music, Friends and Fun” held Wednesday, July 1 at the Cody Park Pavilion.

“We want to remind the community about the necessity of practicing social distancing and wearing face coverings when in public. These measures are vital to our community to keep us healthy and safe. Also crucial to the health of the public is the submission of event plans to the health department prior to holding any public gatherings. This is required for any events that will have a 500 or more occupancy rating”, said Shannon Vanderheiden, Executive Director of WCDHD.
