MEDFORD, Ore. — Public health officials in Jackson, Josephine, and Klamath counties reported new coronavirus cases on Monday, continuing an upward trend since southern Oregon counties began reopening.

Jackson County

In Jackson County, public health officials reported 11 new cases, bringing the county total to 302.

Of Jackson County's total cases, at least 182 are considered recovered. Though there have been no coronavirus-related deaths in the county, 23 people have been hospitalized since the pandemic began.

As of Monday morning, 17,356 tests had been processed for Jackson County.

Jackson County and Asante revealed on Sunday that coronavirus cases among employees at Rogue Regional Medical Center have been linked to two separate outbreaks. So far there has been no specific accounting of how many cases have resulted from those incidents.

Josephine County

Public health officials in Josephine County reported 8 new cases on Monday, bringing the county total to 91. Of those cases, 72 are confirmed positives and 19 are presumptive. 34 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.

At least 7,685 samples have tested negative in Josephine County since the pandemic began.

Klamath County

Klamath County also reported 2 new cases on Monday, bringing the county total to 181. The county reports that 13 people have been hospitalized since the pandemic began, with one death. A woman in her 70s died on June 30.

Public health officials said that 6,871 tests have been processed as of Monday morning.


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.
