{{featured_button_text}}

The Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department reported 86 new coronavirus cases but no new deaths Tuesday. 

With these new cases, the local pandemic total reached 7,620 COVID-19 cases, according to the Health Department's COVID-19 data dashboard. 

The local death toll remains at 32, with eight reported this month.

To date, local health officials have documented 3,327 recoveries from the virus. 

Lincoln hospitals cared for 60 patients Tuesday, including 34 county residents and eight who needed ventilators, the department said in a news release. 

Local health officials remain concerned about the level of community spread and hospitalizations in the county as lax social distancing among smaller groups of people has allowed the virus to spread.
