Jackson County Public Health Reports New COVID-19 Cases - April 6

[Medford, Oregon] — April 6, 2020, Jackson County Public Health is reporting two new COVID-19 cases. This brings the total to 39 cases in Jackson County. At this time, there are no fatalities from COVID-19 reported in Jackson County. For demographic data on the total cases, please access the Jackson County HHS COVID-19 webpage. This data is located under the Jackson County Daily Situational Update tab.

Cases in Jackson County are largely distributed throughout the county, which demonstrates community spread, and is widely dispersed.  Therefore, one city is not safer than another.  It is best that everyone stay at home, practice social distancing, wear an alternative mask when they are out accessing essential services, minimize the number of times they need to access essential services, refrain from hosting or attending social gatherings, and wash their hands frequently. These actions should be taken by all people during all times of the week, including the weekends.

Here are what individuals should and shouldn’t do under Governor Kate Brown’s executive orders that are in place to flatten the curve:


  • Stay home as much as possible; this includes kids and teens
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others any time you are out
  • Go out only for essentials (groceries and medical care), drop off food to neighbors who can’t go out
  • Exercise outside and remain 6 feet apart from other people
  • Have video and phone chats


  • Gather in groups
  • Get together with friends and family outside your immediate household (no drinks or dinners)
  • Have playdates for kids
  • Make unnecessary trips
