MEDFORD, Ore. -- Local public health officials began announcing new confirmed cases of the coronavirus in southern Oregon and northern California as of Friday, May 29. Numbers from each individual county will be updated below as soon as NewsWatch 12 receives their latest figures.

JACKSON:

Jackson County Public Health last reported five newly confirmed COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, bringing the county total to 65.

Of the 65 total cases, Jackson County said that at least 47 have fully recovered. Eighteen cases are still being monitored by public health staff.

"As people begin staying home less and attend gatherings, it is important to understand that the virus has not been eliminated, and there is no vaccine available to prevent people from getting this infection," health officials said in a statement. "Therefore, there is still a risk for people to become ill with COVID-19 and pass the illness on to others. Jackson County Public Health expects to see an increase in COVID-19 cases as people begin to move around more."

Jackson County Public Health recommended that everyone continue to act in order to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

"Everyone taking preventative action will help to protect the health and wellness of the community and it will also help keep Jackson County open," officials said.

KLAMATH: 

Klamath County Public Health reported three new cases in the county on Friday, bringing the County total to 44. Importantly, County officials also reported that at least 36 of those cases had recovered and are no longer active.

"There are eight active cases in Klamath County," officials said. "As of May 28, 3,377 Klamath County tests had been processed by laboratories."

JOSEPHINE: 

On Thursday, Josephine County Public Health that two previously reported "presumptive positive" cases have been downgraded, bringing the county total of cases at 23. Of those cases, 22 are considered recovered.

"While reviewing case management data for quality assurance, Josephine County Public Health staff members determined that two individuals previously categorized as presumptive positive COVID-19 cases did not meet the presumptive nor confirmed case criteria for the disease," officials said. "As such, these two cases have been removed from the total case count for Josephine County. Further investigation confirmed the symptoms exhibited by these individuals was not compatible with COVID-19."

Presumptive cases show symptoms compatible with COVID-19, no alternative diagnosis, and close contact with a confirmed case. Based on Josephine County's results over the past several weeks, presumptive cases are not necessarily tested to confirm the presumptive diagnosis.

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

LAKE:

Lake County now reports two confirmed cases of coronavirus. 227 people have been tested, with 219 negative results. Six tests are still pending.
