[ARCHIVED] 7 new COVID-19 cases in Klamath County

Klamath County reports 7 new cases of COVID-19

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Klamath County Public Health (KCPH) officials report seven new cases of COVID-19. The local case count is 2,798.

This week’s total is seven. The reporting week runs from Sunday through Saturday.

“There have been many questions this week about changing risk levels. Last week was a movement week and Klamath County did not have the metrics to move to another category,” said KCPH Director Jennifer Little. “This week is a warning week. We will know after Saturday whether the county will be eligible for movement next week. It is too early to speculate about the case count at the close of the week.”
