Nebraska Local Public Health Laws


Local departments of health provide services to Nebraskans within their jurisdictions through enforcing local laws at the city and county level. The laws they enforce have specific duties and powers that enable local health departments to promote health and enforce or implement laws. These laws cover everything from how the local health departments are governed to retail tobacco sales.

This section of LawAtlas tracks local laws related to these core functions. Below are links to pages that provide contextual information and texts of relevant local laws for Omaha, Nebraska. In the coming weeks, more pages will be published on new topics for Lincoln, Nebraska.
