The agency said that it expects to see more cases as people begin to move around more and attend social gatherings.

"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," officials continued. "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."
