Lincoln Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird says Lancaster County will begin easing COVID-19 restrictions on Monday. The mayor says a new Directed Health Measure will match guidelines set by Governor Ricketts earlier this week, including allowing restaurants to reopen indoor dining rooms at 50-percent capacity. Services including beauty salons and tattoo parlors can also open as long as they follow safety restrictions put out by the state. Baird said she asked the state to extend the current order past May Eleventh, but decided to keep Lincoln in line with the governor's guidelines.
