A patient critically ill with COVID-19 is pictured here in OHSU's intensive care unit on Aug. 19, 2021.

New cases of COVID-19 dropped from their mid-August peak in Jackson County, but they remain far above the levels of even last November, the previous peak of the pandemic.

So there's a lot of ground left to cover, many people to treat, and thousands of people without vaccines.

Dr. Jim Shames, Jackson County Medical Director, is back to weekly Q&A sessions, as long as the danger remains high. Ask your question at 800-838-3760 or JX@jeffnet.org.
