Jackson County Public Health Reports 172 New COVID-19 Cases - DEC 4

Jackson County Public Health reports 172 new COVID-19 cases as of 12:01 am on December 4, 2020. This update brings the total reported COVID-19 cases in Jackson County to 4,202. On the evening of December 1, 2020, the Oregon Health Authority updated the statewide electronic disease surveillance system where state and local public health authorities manage COVID-19 cases. The update required the system to shut down.  Jackson County Public Health was unable to process new cases during the shut-down on the evening of December 1, 2020. Therefore today’s daily case report is higher than expected.

Jackson County Public Health reports three new COVID-19 deaths, bringing the total deaths to 41 in Jackson County.

Jackson County’s 39th COVID-19 death is a 94-year-old female who tested positive on November 9 and died on December 3 at Rogue Regional Medical Center in Medford, OR. The patient had underlying conditions.

How to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, everyone should take the following steps:

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask
  • Avoid close contact and keep 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who do not live in your household. The fewer people you are around, the better.
  • Wash your hands often
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are touched frequently with common EPA registered household disinfectants
  • Monitor your health, be alert for symptoms
  • Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow, and do not spit

Care Facilities, Senior Living Communities, and Congregate Living Settings

The Oregon Health Authority publishes weekly data on cases and deaths in care facilities, senior living communities, and congregate living settings when there are three or more confirmed cases or one or more deaths.  Due to the spike in cases and outbreaks in these settings, Jackson County Public Health will provide daily information on outbreaks in care facilities, senior living communities, and congregate living settings during the surge of cases in Jackson County.

The numbers of cases includes staff, residents, and close contacts that have been determined to be COVID-19 positive cases and linked to the outbreak. Please note that these outbreaks are under investigation, and data may change daily.  Data is from 12:01 am on 12/4/20.
