COVID-19 confirmed in Lincoln County

LINCOLN COUNTY — The Minnesota Department of Health has confirmed that a person from Lincoln County has tested positive for COVID-19, Southwest Health and Human Services said Friday.

The case is the first officially reported in our area, but SWHHS Public Health Director Carol Biren said it is likely the coronavirus is circulating in our communities.

“With more cases being confirmed in Minnesota and the nation, it was only a matter of time before the virus was in our area,” Biren said in a Friday press release.
