Jackson County Public Health Reports New COVID-19 Case - June 1

[Medford, Oregon] —Jackson County Public Health has one new COVID-19 cases to announce, as of 12:01 AM, June 1, 2020. The new case is a presumptive case. A presumptive case is a person without a COVID-19 test result, has COVID-19-like symptoms and has been in close contact with a confirmed case. This brings the total reported COVID-19 cases in Jackson County to 67. At this time, there are no fatalities from COVID-19 reported in Jackson County. To access additional data on the total COVID-19 cases, visit the Situation in Jackson County, Oregon webpage.

As people have begun to stay home less and attend social gatherings, it is important to understand that the virus has not been eliminated, and there is no vaccine available to prevent people from getting this infection. Therefore, there is still a risk for people to become ill with COVID-19 and pass the illness on to others.  Jackson County Public Health expects to see an increase in COVID-19 cases as people have begun to move around more and are attending social gatherings with people outside of their immediate household.

Jackson County Public Health highly recommends that everyone take action to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.  It is recommended that everyone stay close to home, practice physical distancing (stay 6 feet away from people who are not in your household), and practice good hygiene.  In addition, it is highly recommended that everyone wear a face covering, made from cloth or paper, while out in public settings, especially in settings that are indoors and where it may be difficult to ensure that you can stay 6 feet away from others at all times.

For people who are attending large gatherings in Jackson County, it is important to know that COVID-19 is still a risk in the community.  If you are planning to attend any large gathering, it is it critical that if you have COVID-19-like symptoms (cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell), or are waiting for COVID-19 test results, it is best to not attend the event. It is recommended that everyone practice physical distancing (remain 6 feet from other people), wear a face covering made from cloth or paper, and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer if soap and water is not readily available.
