Klamath County reports 16 new cases of COVID-19

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Klamath County Public Health (KCPH) officials report 16 new cases of COVID-19. The local case count is 2,829.

Four cases were in the statewide database on Saturday and were assigned to last week. The week’s total was 26. The reporting week runs from Sunday through Saturday.

Friday is a potential risk level movement day for Klamath County. Through Saturday, the county had seen 63 cases in the two-week assessment period. To move to the “moderate” risk category, cases needed to be below 67.

Case counts over a two-week period are one of the metrics for changing county risk levels. The other factor is the case positivity rate.
