Lincoln County Covid-19 Updates

COVID-19 is making unprecedented demands on every level of government and every one of us. Lincoln County Public Health has a key role in monitoring disease outbreaks and advising the commissioners on any steps we need to take as commissioners, including coordination with city emergency activities and requesting additional resources from the state and federal governments, based on need and availability.

I want to offer a few links that can provide you with reliable information.
