Douglas County saw four consecutive days of single-digit positive COVID-19 cases, the COVID-19 response team announced Tuesday.

The team reported five new cases Saturday, one Sunday, eight on Monday and six on Tuesday. Sunday was the first one-case day the team had reported since Oct. 23.

Cases involving people in quarantine and in isolation also held steady. The Douglas Public Health Network was monitoring 103 patients with positive tests in isolation and an additional 102 potential contacts in quarantine.

Ten county residents were receiving hospital care due to the coronavirus, six locally and four out of the area.

The Oregon Health Authority reported 463 new positive and presumed positive cases over the holiday weekend, along with one death.

Despite the low number of confirmed cases and Oregon reaching its goal of 70% of adults vaccinated, the Douglas County Tiger Team continues to offer a number of pop-up vaccination clinics this week:

  • Tuesday, Music on the Half Shell, Stewart Park, 5-8 p.m.

The Tiger Team clinics are available to all residents 18 and older.
