ROSEBURG, Ore. -- As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Douglas County, public health officials said it’s getting harder to keep track of all of them.

On Tuesday, Douglas County reported a record-breaking 36 cases. Last week, the record was 33.

Public health officer Bob Dannenhoffer said those numbers reflect how widespread the virus has become in the community. He said people are contracting it from places they once thought they were safe.

“Early on, when there were just a few cases and they were kind of scattered, you could kind of figure out where people got the disease from,” he said. "Now, the disease is coming from all corners.”

With the spike in cases, Dannenhoffer said he is concerned people are choosing not to follow the county and state recommendations to help prevent the virus.

“There are churches out there that have followed what we’ve asked them to do,” he said. "But at the churches that have not ... we’ve seen some outbreaks.”

However, despite the spike, he said Douglas County has consistently done well with testing, which has helped them get a better perspective of how the virus is spreading in the community.

“We now have very widespread, very rapid testing in almost every clinic in town,” he said. “People can get them inexpensive, very fast and pretty darn accurate.”

Douglas Public Health Network runs their drive-through testing sites every Tuesday and Friday.
