SALEM, Ore. — Governor Kate Brown's office issued updated county risk levels on Tuesday, bringing some long-awaited relief for Klamath County.

Jefferson, Klamath, and Marion counties were all approved to move down to Moderate Risk level from High Risk effective Friday. Polk County also acheived the 65 percent adult vaccination rate required for a move to Lower Risk.

By Friday, there will be 23 Oregon counties at Lower Risk, seven at Moderate Risk, and six at High Risk.

"Fewer than 45,000 more Oregonians need to receive a first dose to achieve a 70% statewide adult vaccination rate," said Governor Brown. "Vaccines are the best way for Oregonians to protect themselves, their families, and communities against COVID-19. It's because so many Oregonians have stepped up to get vaccinated that we will soon be able to lift health and safety restrictions. Get your shot today, and you may just win $1 million through the Take Your Shot, Oregon campaign."

Jackson County moved down to Moderate Risk last week, preceded by Josephine County the week before. Curry and Lake counties have been at Lower Risk.

Klamath County's change means an increase in capacity for restaurants, allowing them to grow occupancy from 25 to 50 percent.

Gyms and entertainment venues can increase capacity to 20 percent or 100 people, whichever is larger. For retail stores, the extra capacity amounts to 75 percent of maximum occupancy. Churches can extend indoor capacity to 50 percent occupancy or 150 people, whichever is smaller.

As of Tuesday, 68.7 percent of adult Oregonians had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Oregon officials estimated that 42,176 more people would need to receive a dose for the state to reach 70 percent. While cumulative vaccinations continue to slowly climb, the daily rate has been in a steep decline for the last several weeks.
