MEDFORD, Ore. — Amid continued high cases, Jackson County Public Health reported another death attributed to the coronavirus on Wednesday.

According to officials, Jackson County's 8th COVID-19 death was a 69-year-old woman who tested positive on October 27. She died on November 2 at Providence Medford Medical Center. She had underlying health conditions, officials said.

Jackson County reported 52 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday — another particularly high daily case count, but not a new record. Tuesday saw 70 new cases in Jackson County, in addition to a death from COVID-19 complications in neighboring Josephine County.

"Through the quality assurance process, Jackson County Public Health has removed a previously reported case due to a lab processing error," the agency said. "These updates bring the total reported COVID-19 cases in Jackson County to 2,049."

Of those cases, at least 351 are still considered active. 134 people have been hospitalized with the virus in Jackson County since the pandemic began.

The agency also said that it is investigating a coronavirus outbreak linked to Andersen Construction Co. In total, 16 cases have been linked to the outbreak — 13 employees and three close contacts. The investigation began on October 20 and remains ongoing.

"Jackson County is continuing to see clusters of cases related to social gatherings of various sizes. People from these gatherings, who now have COVID-19, are spreading the infection to workplaces, schools, and childcare facilities as people continue their normal routines," public health officials said. "Many people continue to work or send their children to schools and daycare until they receive a positive lab report, possibly exposing others in the workplace, school, and childcare facilities. It is critical that if someone has been around a close contact and have COVID-19-like symptoms, that they remain home and quarantine."

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