Why are Lincoln County Covid19 Numbers lower than the state numbers on NCDHHS state dashboard? Active cases are really off? Number of deaths took weeks to list? Why doesn't the local Health department give us hot cluster spots as required by state law? A little upset by the way Lincoln County is handling Covid19.
