The Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) today updated the COVID-19 Risk Dial to show some improvement. But the color-coded Dial at COVID19.lincoln.ne.gov remains in the orange category indicating a "high risk" of the spread of COVID-19. On the Dial, red represents the highest risk of COVID-19 spread, and green represents the lowest. The Dial is updated every Friday.

"We have cautiously moved the dial to the lowest orange level, and we want everyone to understand that this progress can be lost if we let down our guard," said Health Director Pat Lopez. "You might be one of those asymptomatic people in the community who doesn't know they are carrying the virus. Your personal actions impact our entire community."
