Contrary to what the Douglas County COVID-19 Response Team repeatedly reported, Douglas County has now had its second week in a row with a positive coronavirus test rate below 1.0%. Fortunately, the Oregon Health Authority calculates and reports this number in their weekly school metrics report at the below link so the safety of our children are not left solely to the agenda of the County Commissioners.

Well for one, several of the other counties are more densely populated. Or it could be the people of Douglas County are making better choices and are following the rules. I bet if you took the statistics on what the average is on how many people follow the rules and divide it down by population, carry the 2 and you would probably come up with the reason. Or it could be really sinister and maybe Commussioner Freeman has stashed the real statistics in his safe with his twinkies! Haha happy Monday people, stay safe!

Do you ever wonder how Douglas County averaged 1 coronavirus case per day over the past month while the six counties surrounding Douglas County have averaged over 29 cases per day?

Our County Commissioners announced last week Douglas County’s coronavirus positive test rate has been below 1% for over 3 weeks. This is contrary to the Oregon Health Authority’s school metrics report (below link) that shows Douglas County’s positive test rate did not go below 1% until the week ending August 30, six days ago.

The Oregon Health Authority reported yesterday Douglas County was unable to trace the source of 47% of its 17 coronavirus cases over the past two weeks. For the entire month of August, Douglas County was unable to trace the source of 33% of its cases.

This low percentage of tracing begs the question how our Commissioners can continue to claim the majority of cases were caused by out-of-state travel when barely 50% of recent cases have been traced.
