MEDFORD, Ore. — Public health officials in Jackson, Josephine, and Klamath counties reported new coronavirus cases on Monday, following a statewide trend in rising cases over the the preceding weeks.

Jackson County in particular has seen multiple new cases every day for more than a week, reporting a record 16 cases on Sunday. On Monday, public health officials reported 5 new cases, bringing the county total to 243.

Of Jackson County's total cases, at least 157 are considered recovered. Though there have been no coronavirus-related deaths in the county, 21 people have been hospitalized since the pandemic began.

Public health officials in Josephine County reported 7 new cases on Monday, bringing the county total to 75. Of those cases, 62 are confirmed positives and 13 are presumptive. 28 cases are still considered active.

The county marked the first death attributed to the virus in southern Oregon on April 11, an 81-year-old man.

Klamath County also reported 7 new cases on Monday, bringing the county total to 157. The county reports that 10 people have been hospitalized since the pandemic began, with one death. A woman in her 70s died on June 30.

Each county follows slightly different strategies for reporting coronavirus-related data. Josephine County does not generally publish hospitalization data, and Klamath County has halted reporting on recovered cases since the Oregon Health Authority changed its guidance on how recoveries are counted. Both Klamath and Jackson counties typically do not specify whether new cases are presumptive or confirmed positive.
