Risk Level Changing Again

Risk Level Changing Again

Per Governor’s Office –

As of this Friday, April 30, for SW Oregon counties, risk levels will be:

  • Coos (no movement – remain High)
  • Curry (no movement – remain Moderate)
  • Douglas: High to Moderate
  • Jackson: High to Extreme
  • Josephine: High to Extreme

While we are very hopeful this is the last surge and that we will see cases decline after this as vaccines increase, given the surge and increased numbers across the board, the Governor has decided to remove the “warning week” for the current and next two weeks (and the use of the “buffer week” will also be on pause). We will release movement week data on the following dates:

Tuesday, April 27th: Movement data released

Friday, April 30th: County Risk Levels change

Tuesday, May 4th: Movement data released

Friday, May 7th: County Risk Levels change

Tuesday, May 11th: Movement data released

Friday, May 14th: County Risk Levels change

Due to the hospital census yesterday of 319 hospitalized cases and the upward trend that has us at a 37.4% increase, the Governor has announced that we are re-instating  extreme risk for this week. We will pull data again next week with the potential of moving all counties out of extreme risk every week if/as the hospitalizations go down (or possibly even if they simply level off). The Governor will also be calling on Metro area hospitals to pause elective surgeries until we see hospital rates come down.

There will be 15 counties moving to extreme risk on Friday, April 30th for at least one week.
