Jackson County logs 169 COVID-19 cases over four days

Jackson County recorded 169 new COVID-19 cases and three additional COVID-19-related deaths for a four-day period from Thursday through Sunday.

Statewide, the Oregon Health Authority reported 3,585 new COVID-19 cases during that window and 25 new COVID-19-related deaths, including those in Jackson County.

The case counts may be low due to the Christmas holiday period, OHA said.

Jackson County residents who died were a 47-year-old man who died at Providence Medford Medical Center, a 65-year-old man who died at his residence and a 92-year-old man who died at Providence. All three had underlying health conditions, OHA said.

Josephine County reported 104 new COVID-19 cases from Thursday through Sunday, plus the COVID-19-related death of a 93-year-old woman who died at her residence. She had underlying conditions, OHA said.

On Monday, the four hospitals in Jackson and Josephine counties had one open intensive care unit bed among them, with 58 filled, according to hospitalization data.

Rogue Valley hospitals had 38 non-ICU beds available, with 403 filled.

On Monday, the four hospitals were caring for 69 patients with COVID-19, up from 56 on Sunday.
