SALEM, Ore. — In the first update to Oregon's county-by-county coronavirus risk levels since the new system began, Governor Kate Brown's office revealed that even more counties will be at "Extreme Risk" — the highest level of restrictions.

The updated list of counties is effective December 18 through 31. For that period, 29 of Oregon's 36 counties will be at Extreme Risk, with only one county at Moderate, and six counties at Lower Risk.

"We continue to see community spread across Oregon to the point that the majority of the state needs to continue with strict health and safety measures," said Governor Brown. "Until we reduce the spread and have high participation in vaccination, all Oregonians need to follow the guidelines in place in their counties. I am also asking Oregonians to continue practicing the measures we know are effective in reducing the spread of COVID-19 — wear your mask, keep physical distance from others, avoid gatherings, wash your hands often, and stay home when you're sick."

In southern Oregon, Lake county was the only one to be downgraded — moving from Extreme to Moderate. Both Curry and Coos counties were moved to Extreme from High; joining Douglas, Josephine, Jackson, and Klamath counties at the highest restriction category.

This is a developing story and will be updated with more details as they emerge.
