COVID-19 Roundup: First Case In Banner

The Goodhand Theatre reopens this weekend for the first time during the pandemic with showings of the Tom Hanks hit "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood." Seating will be limited to 25% of capacity as a safety precaution. This image shows the iconic Kimball movie house's facade sign before it was installed during renovations several years ago.

As of Tuesday morning, Banner County was experiencing its first COVID-19 case.

The person was described as a female in her 30s, and it was spread by close contact, according to Panhandle Public Health District.

Scotts Bluff County continues to have a number of positive cases each and every day and the cases vary between close contact and community spread.

The City of Kimball continues to be very cautious as any and all of its municipal meetings continue to be conducted by Zoom and individuals in the meeting rooms are always placed six feet apart.

The Goodhand Theatre is back in business and showing movies on the weekends. As for safety measure, Keith Prunty said every other row will be taped off and social distancing will be maintained in the lobby.

A movie will be shown every weekend in order to catch up since the theatre was closed due to the virus earlier this year.

Showing June 12, 13 and 14 is "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" with Tom Hanks sponsored by AW Laser Art.

The film on June 19, 20 and 21 will be "Call of the Wild" sponsored by First English Lutheran Church.

Elsewhere in Kimball, Points West Bank, FirsTier Bank and the Kimball State Bank have opened their lobbies to foot traffic.
