MEDFORD, Ore. — Jackson County Public Health reported two new deaths attributed to coronavirus on Wednesday, alongside 108 newly identified cases.

Cases, hospitalizations, and deaths have been gathering steam over the past several weeks. As of Wednesday, Jackson County reported a total of 216 hospitalizations since the pandemic began — six more than the day prior.

The latest fatalities bring Jackson County's death toll to 12, and the new cases put the county total to 3,068.

Officials said that an 84-year-old woman tested positive on October 30 and died November 12 at her home. She had underlying health conditions. The other fatality was a 48-year-old man who tested positive on November 9 and died on November 15 at Providence Medford Medical Center. He also had underlying conditions.

Based on Jackson County's data on ongoing outbreaks at long-term care facilities, at least one of those deaths may have been linked to Avamere Three Fountains, which has now seen at least three deaths:

  • Avamere Three Fountains - Investigation began November 2; currently 113 cases, 3 deaths

"Starting today, November 18, Oregon will be in a statewide Two-Week Freeze to stop the rapid spread of COVID-19 across Oregon," Jackson County Public Health said. "These risk reduction measures are critical in limiting the spread of COVID-19, reducing risk in communities more vulnerable to serious illness and death, and helping conserve hospital capacity so that all Oregonians can continue to have access to quality care."

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