Covid-19 Debrief: Jackson County Medical Director
We read and read and read and listen and listen some more, and still don't fully understand the Covid-19 outbreak.
How could we? Nothing like it has happened in a century. Health workers have questions too, but some answers as well.
Dr. Jim Shames is the medical director at Jackson County Health and Human Services.
He grabs a phone to answer some questions in what we hope will become a regular visit during the crisis. Our chat with Dr. Shames follows an update on shelter-in-place orders from Oregon's governor.
Update: Minutes after our chat, Jackson County announced a third confirmed case of Covid-19.
