MEDFORD, Ore-- According to data collected by the Oregon Health Authority, Jackson County experienced its second week in a row last week of declining Covid-19 cases.
From May 2 through May 8, data from OHA shows that Jackson County experienced 217 cases of coronavirus. That's more than a one hundred case decrease from three weeks ago, 324 cases on the week of April 18, and about a 60 case decrease from two weeks ago.
This comes as Governor Kate Brown moved Jackson County, along with several other Southern Oregon counties, back into 'High Risk' restrictions last Friday after the state experienced below a 15% increase in total hospitalizations.
Vaccinations across Jackson County are increasing steadily as more than 84,000 people have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. More than 73%, or about 61,656 people, of that total amount of people vaccinated so far are fully vaccinated.
According to OHA's new vaccination tracker, Jackson County vaccinated almost 10,000 people this past week, a trend which the county has been following over the last several weeks.
More than 142,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered across Jackson County. 73,126 doses of the Pfizer vaccine, 65,339 doses of the Moderna vaccine and 3,916 doses of the Johnson&Johnson vaccine have been administered in Jackson County.
