Lincoln County Commissioner Kaety Jacobson spoke to the public Sunday on behalf of Lincoln County and her fellow commissioners with a COVID-19 update.

I am Kaety Jacobson, the chair of the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners and am speaking on behalf of the County and my fellow Commissioners.  I am here in the Board of Commissioners’ meeting room which is currently set up as our Joint Information Center, as we coordinate our community response to the COVID 19 pandemic. Lincoln County, the State of Oregon, and the Nation have all enacted Declarations of Emergency. We are in the midst of a crisis unprecedented in our living generations.  Actions that we take now will have consequences for months and years to come.  We understand from our local, state and national public health officials, that the trajectory of this virus can only be limited, and the curve flattened, if we act collectively and decisively.

Many of our businesses have already sacrificed greatly to help flatten the curve of the spread of the disease to keep Oregonians safe. Our local community has also, to a large degree, acted upon Governor Brown’s Stay Home to Stay Healthy directive. Unfortunately, we have had many visitors show up on the Oregon Coast and in Lincoln County contrary to this directive and to the advice from public health authorities. This puts our communities, our citizens, and our limited resources at great risk. We are asking those who have plans to visit the coast, to please postpone those plans until after this crisis is over, we will welcome your business then. To those visitors that are already here, please return home!

Towards that end, many coastal communities and counties have already begun taking action to limit or close tourism services at this time. Lincoln County is convening a joint meeting scheduled tomorrow with Lincoln County and its Cities to discuss and take coordinated action across Lincoln county to address this risk.

This is an extremely difficult time that has forced all of us to make changes in our way of life and to sacrifice greatly to reduce the spread of this virus. As Commissioner Hunt said in our last Board of Commissioners meeting, “there are no good choices, only good decisions.”

Please know that the county continues to work hard to address the needs of our citizens during these challenging times. Please stay safe.

  1. Thank you for doing your best to keep our community safe. Please continue to inform us of the best way to go forward.
    Sincerely……..Toni Russell

  2. I’ve commented on all these similar threads, better late than never I suppose, and closing short term lodging right now, would be a definition of late. Too many haven’t taken this seriously soon enough, maybe it’s not too late, but some decisive action now, today, would be nice.
    I’m glad to read this posting, and at least the question of tourism is being
    looked at for the risk that it is.
    Here we all are impacted by tourism in one way or another, trickle down economics or direct cash flow, but right now, what we need is to be here when the crisis is over.

  3. LINCOLN CITY COUNCIL MEETING TONIGHT- MEREDITH LODGING IS CASHING IN AND PUTTING ALL AT RISK BY RENTING TO GROUPS OF 10+ FROM MULTIPLE STATES AND THEN HAVING A HISPANIC CLEANING GIRL GO IN UNPROTECTED AFTERWARD TO CHEAPLY DO THEIR DIRTY WORK AND PREPARE FOR THE NEXT SUCKERS WHO THEY ARE MISLEADING AND DISOBEYING GROUPS OF 10 OR MORE ORDERS. PLEASE email [email protected] with your name and “citizen comment to be read out loud” in the subject line and per LC city manager it WILL be read out loud at tonight’s meeting- MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD!
