ZIP code COVID-19 case data: Lincoln County

    AUGUSTA — The Maine CDC has released COVID-19 confirmed and probable case data by ZIP code. 
     
    With the data release, the Maine CDC continues to urge all individuals in Maine — resident or not — to abide by all established COVID-19 guidelines whether cases are within their particular ZIP code. 
     
    Do not rely solely on ZIP Code data when making decisions on what you should or should not do amid the pandemic, Maine CDC Director Dr. Nirav Shah said during a COVID-19 update briefing. 
     
    “While interesting and informative, the ZIP Code data is not a tool to calculate risk of engaging in certain activities,” said Dr. Shah. 
     
    The Maine CDC noted there are three exceptions to the data release to ensure compliance with its privacy policy: case counts are suppressed in ZIP codes with fewer than 50 people; exact case counts are suppressed in all ZIP codes with five or fewer cases; in counties where total case counts are low enough that ZIP code data could indirectly reveal the identity of a case all ZIP codes in the county are suppressed. Furthermore, the Maine CDC sometimes will build in delays of data releases to protect patient privacy. 
     
    As per Maine CDC guidance, the below table is sorted by ZIP code since some ZIP codes could span multiple towns. As such, Maine CDC noted the data should not be directly broken down by town and referred to instead by ZIP code.
     
    As of Dec. 8, Lincoln County has recorded 2,837 cases of COVID-19 since March 2020. 
     
    The below data was last updated Dec. 28 by the Maine CDC with data as of Dec. 26.
