DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore.-- Douglas County announced one new case of coronavirus Saturday afternoon, bringing the county's total to 11. 

The county is not releasing identifying information out of privacy concerns, but officials said they are identifying individuals who may have come into contact with the individual. 

As of Saturday, one coronavirus patient had recovered and 323 negative tests had been received in the county. Friday's sixth COVID-19 drive-through testing clinic at the Douglas County Fairgrounds assisted 31 people in getting tests ordered by their health care providers.

The county also shared efforts by first responders to show support for local health care workers. A procession of emergency vehicles passed by the Mercy Medical Center Friday night. 

“Although the event was held at Mercy Medical Center, this was an expression of solidarity for not only the health care workers at the hospital but all of them working so hard throughout our county during this time,” said Sheriff John Hanlin in a press release.
