COVID-19 & Vaccine Watch

Current Radar Image
Alert Banner

With the COVID-19 Delta variant now the predominate strain in Oregon, new cases and hospitalizations are hitting highs never before seen in the state.

Particularly in Jackson and Josephine counties, hospital and public health leaders warn that the healthcare system is already stretched to maximum capacity, without the staffing or facilities to handle the surge.

As of August 13, an indoor mask mandate is back in effect throughout the state of Oregon in an attempt to reduce the spread.

Stay with NewsWatch 12 for updates as we track new developments in Oregon, California, and beyond.
