From the State of Nebraska Judicial Branch
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about a variety of recent changes for the Nebraska Probation System. The staff has quickly adjusted and learned to do business differently in order to maintain client contact, compliance with court orders, and community safety. One of those adjustments has been modifying traditional approaches to drug testing to ensure operations continue safely and effectively. For many, this has included increased usage of the sweat patch method, which has allowed for greater social distancing while testing.
