Jackson County sees 23 new COVID-19 cases Monday

Jackson County Public Health reported 23 new cases of COVID-19 Monday, bringing the local total to 710.

Of those patients, 229 people still are considered infectious, according to county public health data. There have been 59 local hospitalizations and two deaths from the illness.

Jackson County remains one of eight counties on Oregon’s watch list due to a recent surge in sporadic cases of COVID-19, or cases that cannot be traced to a known source. Counties that fail to show improvement after being placed on the list can revert back to previous reopening phases.

Baker, Hood River, Jefferson, Malheur, Morrow, Multnomah and Umatilla also are on the watch list.

Oregon reported 220 more cases Monday and three more deaths from the illness. Since the pandemic started, the state has seen 25,155 cases of the disease, with 420 deaths.
