It is anticipated that Klamath County will move to the “extreme risk level” on Friday. Klamath County was allowed to remain in “moderate risk” for a two-week pause, although case numbers had increased.

In the last two weeks, Klamath County had 179 cases. High risk is between 68 and 135 cases, with moderate between 34 and 67.
