MEDFORD, Ore. – Jackson County just moved into the CDC’s COVID-19 “High Risk” level.
Only two other counties in Oregon are under High: Lane and Douglas.
The increased risk level is due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in the county.
According to the CDC, there’s been a 43% increase in case numbers since the last time data was calculated in late May.
At the current risk level, the CDC recommends masks indoors and on public transportation.
