The Directed Health Measures issued yesterday by Interim Health Director Pat Lopez of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) apply to both the City and the County.

The measures state that these gatherings are prohibited:

  • More than 10 people in single spaces
  • Fewer than 10 people in single spaces where a minimum of six feet between all individuals cannot be maintained

The staff of a business is excluded from the 10-person limit, which only applies to customers, patrons, and other invitees.

Food and beverage sales at any dine-in establishments including restaurants, bars, taverns, and private clubs are restricted to drive-thru, carry out, and delivery only.
