Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The Lincoln County Public Health Department says up to four residents of a Lincoln City assisted living home died of COVID-19 over the weekend.

The agency says two of the deaths at Hillside Place are confirmed cases: a 90-year-old man and a 97-year-old woman. Two more deaths are suspected cases, but test results are still pending. Those include a 66-year-old man and a 93-year-old woman.

The county also announced nine new confirmed cases since Friday, with the bulk of them suspected to be community spread.
