Know Your Source
Making sure you get the RIGHT information about COVID-19 is important.

Tom Dyson, LC Extension Director
NC Cooperative Extension

As Lincoln County residents join hands (figuratively, hopefully not literally) to fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus, reliable information becomes critical.   Much conflicting, confused and non-authoritative information can find its way to television news and other sources, leaving a need for a source of reliable, research based information. 

That type of information is largely what your Lincoln County Cooperative Extension is all about.  As an Extension of North Carolina State University (NCSU), we highly recommend NCSU Extension’s web page for Coronavirus information.  The university is obligated to provide the most accurate, research based, authoritative information possible.  

The web page provides links to key government websites as well as links to NCSU information on a wide range of critical topics such as what to do if you feel you are getting sick, how to make effective hand sanitizer when the store runs out, safety of take-out meals and buying from grocery stores, defense against the virus, and more.   

Take a look at and see just what topics are available, so that when you need information, you have it bookmarked and ready to go. 

Please take the battle against spread seriously, and stay healthy.
