Lincoln County Health Board taken captive by ideologues

To the editor:

The article “Health board has few answers for local providers exhausted by pandemic” (Sept. 17) details what happens when professionals and experts are forced out of local health boards by anti-vax, anti-mask, anti-science and truth-denying political zealots.

Cases skyrocketing? Deaths climbing? Don’t worry about it. Just show “positive attitudes.”

Just practice clean living, get good nutrition and take vitamin supplements. There’s your new health leadership as the numbers as of Sept. 2 show 39 new cases, 321 active cases, 46 deaths and 20 current hospitalizations.
