Lincoln County Moves to Phase 2 Reopening Sept 29th

Lincoln County entered Phase 1 on May 15, 2020

Lincoln County will move into Phase 2 on September 29, 2020


The following is a weekly summary update from the Lincoln County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) provided by the Lincoln County Public Information Officer (PIO).
Update from Lincoln County Health Department Director Rebecca Austen, RN
The Board of Commissioners decided, based on the continued downtrend of SARS-CoV-2 cases in the county two weeks out from Labor Day weekend, to continue forward with the September 29th date to move into phase 2 barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Residents are encouraged to continue practicing physical distancing, hand washing, and wearing face coverings. Moving into phase 2 means the precautions our community has collectively engaged in worked to successfully reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2. These safety measures must continue to be practiced to ensure our community does not see a wave of new cases as we move indoors during the cold and rainy fall and winter months.

The 24 hour lodging hold on unincorporated areas was also lifted at the BOC meeting on Monday, September 21st, 2020.
