Jackson County at 320 deaths

State and local health officials reported 14 new coronavirus related deaths across Oregon Friday — including two new deaths in Jackson County.

The latest local COVID-19 fatalities bring Jackson County’s death toll to 320, according to Oregon Health Authority reports.

Other deaths reported Friday across the state included four deaths in Crook County and one death each in the counties of Clackamas, Klamath, Lincoln, Polk, Tillamook and Yamhill.

Details about the Oregon deaths such as age and underlying conditions were not available as of early Friday afternoon.

The OHA did, however, release added information about the 24 fatalities they reported Thursday. Of those 24 deaths, 17 occurred in the month of October and involved Oregonians in their 40s, 50s, 60, 70s, 80s and 90s from Jackson, Douglas, Lane, Malheur, Marion, Multnomah, Umatilla, Washington and Yamhill counties.

Another seven deaths were fatalities previously uncounted that occurred between September 2020 and March of this year.

Health officials logged 82 new cases in Jackson County and 33 new cases in neighboring Josephine County Friday. The new cases bring Jackson County’s caselog to 23,433, and Josephine County’s caselog to 9,531.

As of Thursday, there were 55 COVID-positive patients in Jackson and Josephine County hospitals, according to state data.

The number is a drop from the 71 coronavirus patients recorded Monday, but above the low for the month of 47 patients in Southern Oregon logged Oct. 14.
