COVID Q&A As Oregon Closes On 70% Vaccination

 Jackson County Health and Human Services

Only nine counties in Oregon remain in the "high risk" category for the spread of COVID-19, and Jackson County is no longer one of them, dropping at last into the "moderate" category.

Douglas and Klamath Counties remain in the "high" category. The risk reshuffling comes as Oregon continues to see dropping cases and increasing vaccination numbers.

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.
