Lincoln City officials said four new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed Friday. The total number of cases in Lancaster County is now 49. All four of the new cases are considered community-acquired by the Lincoln-Lancaster Health Department.

Interim Health Director Pat Lopez said Lincoln residents need to follow guidelines set by officials to ensure the safety of everyone.

"We need the public to realize the seriousness of this situation and each of us must contribute to being part of the solution and reducing the spread of the disease," Lopez said. "Although the risk of severe disease may be different for everyone, anyone can get and spread COVID-19."

Lincoln Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird said residents should support small businesses at this time. She said many small business owners have made sacrifices by closing to protect the health of their community. Gaylor Baird recommended supporting them through online purchases and the purchase of gift cards, to help these businesses continue to stay open after the pandemic is over.
