While precautions remain necessary, there are new signs that the situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak is gradually getting better in Lincoln Parish.

Another sign of such will begin on Monday.

“Effective June 1, 2020, the Lincoln Parish Sheriff ’s Office will discontinue the grocery delivery service,” LPSO spokesman Matt Henderson said via email. “With the lifting of restrictions, we have seen a decline in participation these last few weeks. We would like to thank everyone who participated in this program.”

The LPSO in mid-March began offering grocery pickup and delivery service for residents age 60 and older who use the Walmart grocery pickup service or the Super 1 Foods curbside service.

“We would like to extend a special thank you to Walmart and Super 1 for their patience and support over the last two months,” Henderson said. “Together, over 150 deliveries were made to our citizens.”
