KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- Health officials in Klamath County have announced two new cases of the coronavirus - bringing the total in the county to 14.

"KCPH staff know there is concern in the community about the increased case number. It is important that everyone takes this virus seriously," the agency said. "People can show their support for keeping the community healthy by staying home as much as possible and practicing social distancing, when leaving home is necessary."

"It is also important to understand that increased access to testing will find more cases," the agency continued. "This is a positive step to being able to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Test results that show infection are followed up through contact tracing. This allows Public Health to work with the person about quarantine and isolation. It also protects everyone from infection by those members of the community who are at highest risk of exposing others."

Though Klamath County has been loathe to release any identifying information about local cases, it has now started to release some demographics about them. So far, three cases have been in the 20-29 age group, two cases 30-39, three cases 40-49, three cases 50-59, and three cases 60-69. No one age 70 or older has yet to test positive for COVID-19.

Three of the total cases have been in men, the rest are all women. Only three of the cases have been hospitalized, each in the 40 or older range. There are still no deaths reported in the county from COVID-19.

"COVID-19 is now in the community. Many people will contract the virus and have no symptoms," KCPH said. "They may infect others without realizing it. That is why staying at home, social or physical distancing, and frequent handwashing is so important."
