New Directed Health Measure Will Take Effect November 1

Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird and the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) today announced the changes to the Directed Health Measure (DHM) that will be in effect from November 1 through 30. The purpose of the DHM is to outline the preventive measures that must be taken in the community to stop the spread of COVID-19. The current DHM expires October 31.

The new DHM includes the following changes:

The new local DHM continues the mask mandate. An event plan must continue to be submitted to the Health Department and approved for any gathering that expects 500 or more patrons in attendance at one time. Religious gatherings, including weddings and funerals, continue to be governed by the current state DHM.

Businesses with questions on the DHM may call 402-441-6280. More information on the current DHM and COVID-19 in the community is available at
