Covid-19 Lincoln County

Lincoln County told Homepage Tuesday it will restart daily COVID-19 updates after announcing they would no longer be providing the updates Saturday.

In an email response to Homepage inquiries Tuesday, Lincoln County Board of Commissioners Chair Kaety Jacobson said:

“The county is back to reporting daily reports, which will come out at approximately noon each day.”

The news of Lincoln County Public Health stopping COVID-19 daily updates comes at a time when six workplace outbreaks are possible, prompting Lincoln County residents to inundate Homepage with emails asking why the County was stopping the updates at such a critical juncture.

“It seems to me, with there being “6 potential workplace outbreaks”, that this is a very bad time for the county to stop providing the daily updates,” said one Lincoln County business owner. “As a Lincoln County resident, who since before the St. Paddy’s Day closures has been doing everything I can to stay safe and keep others safe, this would be very useful information for everyone in the county.”

Some residents, identifying themselves as vulnerable, said they were “extremely worried” and “vitally concerned” about the outbreaks and needed the information to determine what city they should shop in and where they could get medicine.

Due to Oregon Health Authority rules and HIPAA laws, Public Health says they cannot name a business with an outbreak unless five workers test positive for COVID-19 and the business has more than 30 employees.

As of Tuesday, June 16, Lincoln County has 223 positive COVID-19 cases.

  1. Hey Plaguedoc,
    You’re so right. If we all would get on our knees and thank God for our great president who only looks at the facts, we would be better served. This blue state is so wrong in its uninformed decision making. Stupid sheep will follow stupid leadership.

  2. True but I’m surprised you find Trump as credible as Fauci. Glad you’ve seen the light. Either way you might consider not blindly following public figures and get some info for yourself. updates per capita infections, tests, and fatalities. If you took the time to crunch some actual numbers you wouldn’t have to set your hair on fire. For instance did you know only four states have less fatalities than Oregon per capita? You can tell all the other kids on the short bus you learned something new today.

  3. Didn’t Fauci once say Face masks were useless and Covid-19 was nothing we should worry about? You sure about that Dem?

  4. Got it. You already said that. Considered “one trick pony” for a handle? There’s no science to back up your social distancing hysteria. This is a demographic issue little gun. State by state fatalities per capita prove this. Am I going to fast for you? The “at risk“ are at risk. 40% of fatalities are from nursing homes yet you Simpleminded Browntards want to lock EVERYONE down. Good policy would be protect the “at risk” and free the healthy. Unless you are a sheep from the Kate cult you would get this. Please give this post to one of your conservative friends and they can explain this to you.

  5. A Nazi is a Nationalist and they Hate Liberal Democracy

    Nationalist Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism, is the ideology and practices associated with the Nazi Party – officially the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP) – in Nazi Germany, and of other far-right groups with similar ideas and aims. Nazism is a form of fascism, with disdain for liberal democracy and the parliamentary system. It incorporates fervent antisemitism, anti-communism, scientific racism, and the use of eugenics into its creed. Its extreme nationalism originated in Pan-Germanism and the ethno-nationalist völkisch movement prominent in German nationalism!

    Plaguedoc your speaking sheeple!

  6. “Our entire ability to reopen and stay open is dependent on whether each of us follows basic health and safety protections,” Gov. Brown said. I don’t think Republicans are capable of this unless Trump tells them to do so. “Sheeple People” . . . “Silence of the Lambs”

  7. Kev, I just called Kate and asked her to send you a list of offenders and she said that she would. I was thinking you and Demwtdalittlegun might put a posse together and round us all up. And as for the snowflake cap, Little gun and Kev have permission to wear snowflake caps instead of a face mask.

  8. Trumptard? Demwthdalittlegun you should be ashamed. What’s that sound? I think the thought police are at your door. Also we do not mock you because you follow rules. We mock you because you follow stupid, mindless rules that are arbitrarily applied. We mock you because Herr Brown claimed 60,000 would die from covid and all you goose stepping Hitler youth still drink the Kool-Aid. Now shut up and put your snowflake cap back on before I call Kate.

  9. So tired of all this. All Trump is doing is instilling fear and uncertainty. What about the people with underlying illnesses who have emphysema like Kevin or asperger’s like Trump. Then there’s a bunch of Trump Admin Idiots running around campaigning and spreading the virus and who refuse to wear face masks, especially in public! Why do democrats have to always take the lead. What good does it do us to tell us about the cases and where they are when your President says Today it is going away fast! Yea right! It’s the same as it always is . . . people who follow the rules get mocked and put down as snowflakes. But the Trumptards who bumble through Trumptardism will soon be put to sleep!

  10. This is crap. All it’s doing is creating fear and uncertainty. I have
    emphysema, and can barely breathe to begin with, and a bunch of idiots are running around spreading this virus. We are following the mask wearing suggestions and trying to avoid this thing.
    What good does it do to tell people about cases when we don’t know where they are- In Lincoln City? In Newport? In Siletz?
    It’s the same as it always is- people who follow the rules get screwed, and the idiots who bumble through life never get a scratch.

  11. The idea that there is a state law or rule preventing Lincoln County from disclosing the site of potential workplace outbreaks with fewer than five infected people is utter nonsense. That is the Oregon Health Authority’s practice, but it is not a law nor a rule.

  12. What happened to the workers at Pacific Seafood that they brought in from Wherever. Are they quarantined, did they send them back to wherever. Did they notifying the area where they went, or was Pacific Seafood as irresponsible with them as they were with Lincoln County. Have Pacific Seafood been held accountable here. Who tracing the truck drivers. Odot.
