Midway Through 'The Pause:' COVID Q & A With Jackson County


Oregon COVID-19 cases shot up drastically as October gave way to November, and the governor put several counties in a "pause" for two weeks, placing further restrictions on some social and commercial gatherings.

Jackson County is one of the pause counties, waiting to see if the period brings the high rate of new infections down. Shortly after the "pause" was announced, the governor announced a "freeze" on some activities for the entire state.

Dr. Jim Shames is the Medical Director at Jackson County Health and Human Services. He visits once a week to catch us up on COVID-19 issues and current concerns. Ask your question at 800-838-3760 or JX@jeffnet.org.
