Bracing for a winter spike: COVID Q&A with Dr. Shames

You have to say this for COVID-19: it has not lost the power to surprise.

Oregon's big COVID spike was in the summer, and now colder parts of this country and Europe are seeing cases rise sharply.

Jackson County recorded an uptick in cases in the last completed week, but nowhere near the numbers of August.

Dr. Jim Shames, Jackson County Medical Director, joins us for weekly Q&A sessions.

We discussed the chart of new cases in Jackson County, which shows the two major spikes so far... it's at the bottom left of the county COVID Dashboard.
