The resumption of some "normal" activity may have pumped some dollars into the economy, but it also pumped up the numbers of people with active cases of COVID-19.

Even states that put up strict measures to flatten the infection curve, like California and Oregon, have watched the numbers increase rapidly of late. Jackson County health workers are keeping track of cases as they rise, and county Medical Director Dr. Jim Shames visits the JX once a week to provide updates.

We welcome back Dr. Shames for the latest round of news and questions.
