Out Of 'Extreme Risk': COVID Q&A With Dr. Jim Shames


Being a "high risk" county may not sound like a good thing, but it beats the "extreme risk" tag Jackson County bore under the governor's system for setting pandemic restrictions.

The lessening of risk status means more activities can be held that bring people together. Dr. Jim Shames is the Medical Director atJackson County Health and Human Services.

He visits once a week to catch us up on COVID-19 issues and current concerns. This week's visit is preceded by a reporter chat about herd immunity.
