Lincoln City Covid-19 status

Today, Governor Brown announced that Lincoln County will be moving to the moderate risk level on Friday.

This week was the third straight week of movement weeks for the state. Grant and Wasco counties join Lincoln in the move down to moderate risk while all other counties stay at their current level.

The Governor also announced a plan to lift most restrictions by the end of June. The plan is simple – as soon as 70 percent of all Oregonians ages 16 and older have had at least one vaccination, most restrictions will be lifted.

Governor Brown also announced a new incentive for counties to get to, and remain, in the low-risk category. As of May 17, any county that has had 65 percent of their eligible population (age 16+) receive a first dose vaccination will be able to move to low risk that Friday. In addition, there will be no threat of moving to a more restrictive risk level again. Counties will also be required to submit an equity plan to OHA.

As of this morning, Lincoln County has vaccinated 63 percent of the eligible population. This means we only need 793 more people vaccinated with their first dose to move permanently to low-risk. If this happens this week, the county will move on Friday, May 21.

The state target of 70 percent will not get us to community (herd) immunity, so the state has set a target of 80 percent vaccinated by the end the summer. To do this, walk-in clinics are increasing throughout the state. Lincoln County has already made all clinics open to walk-ins, and pharmacies are working on plans for that as well. In addition, public health is increasing mobile pop-up clinics. Businesses, community groups, and agencies are encouraged to complete this survey to bring a clinic close to you – tinyurl.com/VaxUpLincolnOutreachClinics

This week’s clinics are listed on our website at https://www.co.lincoln.or.us/hhs/page/covid-19-vaccination-clinics. Lincoln County is very close to moving to the low-risk category – help us get there by getting vaccinated this week.

  1. I’ve been vaccinated, and I can assure you I am not dead. I am however,
    protected against people who are part of a problem.
    I can also assure you that I make my own rules, at least to the extent that
    I can and still avoid being locked up without a good reason.

  2. These vaccines are experimental, and only used as a “TOOL” for idiots that believe in them. CONTROL, CONTROL, CONTROL. The next thing they do is tell us what we can eat and what we can’t eat. What time we get up, go to sleep and how much money we spend, how many hours on the internet we can have. DO NOT LISTEN TO THESE LIARS. DO NOT BE SHEEP. THEY ARE FAKE VACCINES. THEY HAVE KILLED PEOPLE, REUINED THEIR IMUNE SYSTEM, CAUSED MUCH DAMAGE TO SOME. OVER 35,000 HAVE DIED FROM THEM.https://usawatchdog.com/inflation-everywhere-vaccine-push-us-drought-increasing/

  3. “Governor Brown also announced a new incentive for counties to get to, and remain, in the low-risk category.”………
