Jackson County Public Health Reports 10 New COVID-19 Cases - July 30

“It took nearly 4 months into the pandemic for Jackson County to hit 100 cases, says Jackson Baures, Jackson County Public Health Division Manager. “It took just 3 weeks to reach 200 cases, and just11 days to reach 300 cases.” Jackson County Public Health is stressing the importance for people to take preventative action and wear a mask, practice physical distancing, wash your hands regularly, frequently disinfect surfaces that or touched often, to help prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19.

 Overall, people in Oregon should follow the three W’s:

  • WEAR a face covering
  • WATCH your distance
  • WASH your hands

Masks, face shields, or face coverings are currently required statewide for indoor public spaces (for example, grocery stores, pharmacies, public transit, personal services providers, restaurants, bars, retail stores, and more). Face coverings are required in outdoor public spaces when physical distancing is not possible. In addition, face coverings are now required when exercising indoors, plus outdoors when you cannot physically distance. The statewide masking requirements apply to all Oregonians ages five and older.

The science on COVID-19 is growing, and it is clear that masks slow the spread of COVID-19. There is emerging evidence that masks/face coverings protect the wearer from other people by filtering out some virus particles that can cause infection. Wearing a face covering will help protect people around you, including those at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and workers who frequently come into close contact with other people (e.g., in stores and restaurants). Wearing a mask/facial covering is an empowering way for each of us to protect our communities, our families, and ourselves.

Wear your Face Covering Correctly:

  • Wash your hands before putting on your face covering
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure is under your chin
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily
