EUGENE, Ore. -- Lane County is getting a downgrade. Starting Friday, the county will be in moderate risk.
Gov. Kate Brown announced the changes to the counties' risk levels on Tuesday.
"The science is clear: vaccines are very effective in keeping people safe from COVID-19, and they are the key to returning to normal life and lifting health and safety restrictions statewide," said Brown. "Thanks to all the Oregonians who have been vaccinated so far, Oregon’s case rates have continued to decline."

When 65% of Lane County residents 16 and older have received at least one dose of a vaccine, Brown will reduce the county to lower risk.
Last week, Coos County reportedly met the criteria for high risk, but was given a two-week caution period at moderate risk.
