It's really cute when they try to reassure us that 551 possible contacts are in quarantine. Mm-hmm, sure.

Despite good news around much of the Country, Douglas County may not be out of the woods yet.

Douglas County had 138 new coronavirus cases over the past 14-days which equates to a case rate of 122.9. This number has been steadily increasing over the past two weeks, dimming the possibility of Douglas County escaping the high risk category any time soon.

The hospitalizations in Oregon's region 3, consisting of Douglas, Coos, Curry and Lane Counties, has also steadily increased from a low of 9 on April 9th to 32 today.

Increasing cases and increasing hospitalizations, combined with the lowest vaccination rate in the region will ensure Douglas County businesses will remain in the high category or possibly return to the extreme category. It appears many residents have made the choice to sacrifice Douglas County businesses to perpetuate their political beliefs. We have no one to blame but our selves.
