SALEM, Ore. – Coos and Douglas counties are among five that will see their COVID-19 risk level drop to high risk at the start of 2021.

Gov. Kate Brown announced the changes on Tuesday.

“After weeks of diligent work by local leaders and public health officials to implement health and safety measures in their communities, this week’s county data is a welcome sign that we are making progress in stopping the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon,” Brown said. “The county risk level framework is meant to put us on track to reopen our schools, businesses, and communities. It is not easy. Oregon families and businesses have made incredible sacrifices. If we work together, we will see more counties begin to lower their COVID-19 risk levels. If communities let down their guard too early, we could see our hard-won progress unravel just as quickly.

From Jan. 1 through 14, a total of 24 Oregon counties will be in extreme risk, five will be at high risk, none are at moderate risk and seven are at lower risk. Different health and safety measures are in place at each level of the framework.

Lincoln, Morrow, and Clatsop counties are also going to be moving to high risk.
