Fifth COVID-19 Related Death of a Douglas County Resident

Our Douglas County Public Health Officer, Dr. Robert Dannenhoffer, has confirmed the death of our fifth Douglas County resident from the COVID-19 virus. Our fifth COVID related death is a 64-year-old man who was found deceased on Saturday, October 17, 2020, at his residence in Myrtle Creek, Oregon. During the post-mortem investigation conducted in partnership with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, the Douglas County Medical Examiner’s Office, DPHN and the Oregon Public Health Lab, multiple COVID-19 tests were performed and all returned positive test results. Further, it was discovered, unbeknownst to DPHN, that he was directly linked to a positive Douglas County case that is currently in isolation. He apparently had been sick with symptoms of the virus, but had not been tested for COVID-19 prior to his death. He is the first post-mortem COVID-19 related death recorded in our county. In the interest of privacy for the individual’s loved ones, no additional information will be released. Each death related to COVID-19 is painful for all Douglas County residents, and a reminder of the terrible impact COVID-19 has had in our local communities. The Douglas County Board of Commissioners, Dr. Dannenhoffer, DPHN staff and the DCCRT Team continue to extend our heartfelt condolences and sympathies to all family members, friends, relatives, co-workers and community members of those who have passed after contracting this deadly virus.

Another day with a big increase in cases. We know we keep reiterating this message, but our primary focus is to do everything we can to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our citizens. Today, as noted above, we reported a significant spike in new cases. With the onset of cold/flu season, holiday happenings on the horizon, some schools people yearning for social activities and parents already expressing remote teaching fatigue, it’s important that everyone get back on track with COVID-19 prevention measures. It is definitely not the time to forgo your preventative COVID-19 health and safety measures. If you still want to partake in social activities, we ask that you do so with safety and COVID protection in mind. The DCCRT team continues to encourage residents to protect themselves, their loved ones and their communities by practicing prevention measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Residents can help to protect themselves, their families and our communities from the spread of COVID-19 by following these simple, basic health and safety precautions: 

  • Make a habit of washing and sanitizing your hands. That means washing after you eat, touch new surfaces, go to the bathroom, go to the store, go to the post office or after a meeting. Remember also to try to avoid touching your face as much as possible. 
  • Stay at least six feet apart from anyone that is not from your immediate household. This means paying attention to the distance stickers at the store, the bank, at restaurants and at businesses. Please be respectful and polite, by giving people ample space.
  • Stay home from work, school and play if you are sick. This includes not running errands or going shopping or inviting visitors to your home. If you need help, reach out to friends, family or utilize an app or businesses that offers no contact deliveries. 
  • Minimize travel, especially out of the state and limit visitors to your home.
  • Wear a mask were recommended.

Our recent cases can be attributed to travel and unwitting and unintentional behavior by residents choosing to attend or host social gatherings where COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing, food preparation, hand washing and masks are not being followed. Cases have been linked to social gatherings including: birthday parties, weddings, funerals, prayer groups, play dates, visiting family members and school events. Again, we ask that you take a moment and revisit how you are socializing and please protect yourself and your loved ones from the spread of this virus. Please stay safe and remember to be kind to others. Stopping the increase of COVID-19 cases in our county is really up to YOU, our citizens.

UPDATED: OHA Definition for Recovered

We wanted to let you know that as per the Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 Investigative Guidelines, the number of recovered is no longer being assessed or reported. Up until May 1st, 2020 recovery from COVID-19 was defined as being afebrile (not feverish), without the use of antiphyretics (medicine to reduce a fever), and having resolution of cough, shortness of breath and diarrhea for at least 72 hours. As more was learned about symptoms, recovery and contagious period, the definition of recovered changed. Beginning May 1st, OHA stopped reporting recovered cases while also separating recovery from contagious or isolation period. Many cases were no longer contagious as they were outside of the contagious period, but still having lingering symptoms. To be consistent with OHA and to adapt as we learn more about this new virus, we removed the column in our chart listing recovered cases. At that point, we added the number of those in isolation, roughly indicating active or infectious cases of COVID-19.

Currently, DPHN is supporting 43 cases in isolation, as well as another 123 contacts in quarantine in Douglas County. Isolation is recommended for confirmed and presumptive cases, quarantine is recommended for contacts of confirmed or presumptive cases. This number represents a snapshot of the significant amount of work being done by our county and our public health to help control the spread of COVID-19.

The next drive-through testing clinic is today, Tuesday, October 20, 2020, in Roseburg. As a reminder, if you are having symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, sore throat or decreased sense of smell and taste, talk to your health care provider about being tested for COVID-19.

OHA Update: Thursday, October 8, 2020 Marked the Highest Number of Daily COVID-19 Cases in Oregon 

Shared from OHA. Over the past few weeks, Oregon has seen a steady rise in daily cases. Sadly, yesterday we saw the highest number of COVID-19 cases reported in Oregon in a single day since the beginning of the pandemic in Oregon. Yesterday, Oregon reported 484 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases. During a media briefing yesterday, Deputy State Health Officer and State Epidemiologist Dr. Tom Jeanne said that cases have been caused by infections passed along at social gatherings, workplaces and long-term care facilities. The increase in cases has reversed the progress Oregonians had made in the late summer, and their most recent modeling shows the virus is spreading more rapidly, just as we enter the fall and winter when Oregonians will spend more time indoors. That means that COVID-19 is in communities across Oregon. When the virus is in the community, it will spread if people don’t take precautions to prevent the spread. If people don’t continue to follow the suggested health and safety precautions (Three w’s: wash your hands, watch your distance and wear masks were recommended), and continue to socialize frequently with people outside their households or gather in groups, the virus will enter our workplaces, our schools and our nursing homes. Dr. Jeanne reminds us: Every one of us needs to continue to take this threat seriously. The choices we make affect not only us and our families but our neighbors, our communities and the most vulnerable people among us. You have worked hard to limit the spread of COVID-19. Keep it up: Wear face coverings, keep physically distant, frequently wash your hands, and avoid gathering in groups.

Prevention is the Best Medicine

As you can see from our Douglas County Weekly Positive Test Result Tracking Chart, which tracks the weekly positive test results since our first case was reported in early March, we have seen many up and down weeks, but most notably the unfortunate the spike in the middle of July. What we also wanted to bring your attention to is the fact that our positive test results are again on the rise. This should be very concerning for our residents. The DCCRT team continues to encourage residents to protect themselves and their loved ones by practicing prevention measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Residents can protect themselves and their families by following these simple, basic health and safety precautions:

  • Washing and sanitizing your hands frequently.
  • Staying at least six feet apart from anyone not from in immediate household.
  • Staying home from work, shopping, school and play if you are sick.
  • Minimizing travel and visitors.
  • Wearing a mask were recommended.

Our recent cases can be attributed to travel and unwitting and unintentional behavior by residents choosing to attend or host social gatherings where COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing, food preparation, hand washing and masks are not being followed. Cases have been linked to social gatherings including: birthday parties, weddings, funerals, prayer groups, play dates, visiting family members and back–to-school events. Again, we ask that you take a moment and revisit how you are socializing and please protect yourself and your loved ones from the spread of this virus. Please stay safe and remember to be kind to others. Stopping the increase of COVID-19 cases in our county is really up to YOU, our residents.

 

OHA Definition for Recovered

Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving. As more is learned about COVID, the clinical definition of recovery is evolving. Due to the evolving nature of this definition, we have removed the column in our chart listing our recovered cases. We added the number of those in isolation that roughly correlates with the number of active cases. The DCCRT noon case and daily update will report the Total Number of COVID-19 Cases, the number of positive test results (as of 12:00 pm that day), the number of presumptive, total currently hospitalized, total currently in isolation, total COVID-19 deaths and total negative test results in Douglas County. Currently, DPHN is supporting 35 cases in isolation, as well as another 130 contacts in quarantine in Douglas County. Isolation is recommended for confirmed and presumptive cases, quarantine is recommended for contacts of confirmed or presumptive cases.

We added the number of those in isolation that roughly correlates with the number of active cases.

We continue to encourage you to stay vigilant in protecting you and your family from contracting or spreading this virus. Please continue to curb your travel, limit attending social gatherings, stay home if you are sick, wash your hands, stay six feet apart and wear a mask where recommended.

Special Update: DPHN Performs Long-Haul Analysis of Local COVID-19 Cases

The epidemiology team at Douglas Public Health Network (DPHN) recently performed a local long-haul analysis of the first several cases of COVID-19 in Douglas County.  Long-haul refers to a prolonged recovery time from a disease and some researchers have called people suffering with COVID-19 symptoms for weeks or months after their diagnosis “long-haulers”.

The purpose of the analysis was to increase understanding of how the virus affects our local residents that have survived it, and what, if any, long term consequences and/or after affects there are to having been infected with the virus. The process began with a DPHN epidemiology team member reaching out to the first several positive cases in the county. The first positive case of COVID-19 in Douglas County was March 8, 2020 and we have since had a total of 179 cases of COVID-19 in Douglas County. 

During the follow up inquiry, several questions were asked of the previous case subjects, including:

  • How long did it take from the time you tested positive to return to the time you felt like you did before getting sick?
  • What, if any, symptoms persisted?
  • How are you feeling now, several months out? 

The results of the follow up inquiry were profound. DPHN epidemiology team members discovered that 81% of the cases they contacted reported that they still had continuing symptoms, several months past their positive COVID test.  Consequently, the analysis showed that less than only 1 in 4 (19%) cases reported feeling back to normal. Of the 81%, the most common lingering symptom reported was continued fatigue months after recovery.  The second most common lingering symptom reported was shortness of breath. Unfortunately, one case is still on oxygen all hours of the day, indicating possible serious lung and respiratory damage. Additional lingering symptoms reported in more than a third of the case subjects included: muscle aches, swollen glands, memory loss, headaches, diarrhea, rash, hair loss, nausea and neurological symptoms in the hands and feet. The concluding analysis revealed that recovery and resolution of symptoms of COVID-19 appears to be a long and arduous road for the majority of those that were infected.  The analysis emphasized the necessity for residents to follow prevention measures to avoid exposure and infection to the coronavirus in the first place. DPHN will continue to support those that have been infected with the virus.  DPHN, along with the DCCRT Team will continue to promote prevention measures such as limiting travel, limiting social gatherings, promoting social distancing and the wearing of face coverings when appropriate.

Currently, DPHN is supporting 12 cases in isolation.

The next drive-through testing clinic will be today, Tuesday, September 1, 2020, in Roseburg. As a reminder, if you are having symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, sore throat or decreased sense of smell and taste, talk to your health care provider about being tested for COVID-19. Patients without a Primary Care Provider, that are looking for a COVID-19 test should contact the Sutherlin Aviva Health Clinic at (541) 459-3788. The first drive-through testing site was piloted in the county on March 17, 2020, there have been 1432 people tested in 66 drive-through clinics, while additional testing continues in hospitals, urgent cares and clinics. The drive-through clinics are led by DPHN, in conjunction with partner agencies including; Douglas County COVID-19 Response Team, Douglas County Board of Commissioners, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas County Public Works, local volunteers and local health professionals.

Updated August 30, 2020 - 1:04PM

Today brings both good and sad news.  The good news is that as of 12:00 pm today, Sunday, August 30, 2020, there are NO new positive test results since our noon case update yesterday.  The total number of cases (people with positive test results and presumptive) in Douglas County remains at 177*. 

The sad news is that, Dr. Robert Dannenhoffer, our Douglas County Public Health Officer, confirmed the third COVID-19 related death of a resident of Douglas County. Our third COVID related death is 70-year-old woman who passed away at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, Oregon, yesterday, Saturday, August 29, 2020.  She tested positive for COVID-19 on August 9, 2020, and was initially hospitalized in Eugene and then transferred to Portland on Thursday, August 27, 2020.  In the interest of privacy for the individual’s loved ones, no additional information will be released.  

It is truly heartbreaking news that we lost resident, friend and neighbor to COVID-19. We all send our thoughts and prayers to the family at this time. Unfortunately, through our investigation of this case we discovered that the virus was acquired because of out-of-state travel and social gatherings.  I really want to stress how important it is to do everything you can to protect yourself and your family from contracting this deadly virus,” stated Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer.

We wanted to take the opportunity to reiterate once again about how important it is to keep your family and loved ones safe during this pandemic.  Sadly, this case is another one directly linked to out-of-state travel, social gatherings and exposure to individuals that were unknowingly asymptomatic or mildly sick with COVID, that infected their more vulnerable family member and this time with devastating results. The COVID-19 virus is still here, still infectious and will be around for quite some time. The bottom line is that everyone needs to take personal responsibility for their actions and adopt the proper precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to encourage residents to be cautious about traveling outside our county, and instead encourage our residents to delay travel, consider stay-cations and utilize phone or video calling with family and friends.  Reversing the increase of COVID-19 cases in our county is really up to YOU, our residents.  The DCCRT Team, under the direction of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners, along with Dr. Dannenhoffer and Douglas Public Health Network, would like to remind residents of the importance of being compassionate to one another and to take extra care in helping us to slow the spread of COVID-19 in order to protect your health, your family’s health and the health of our communities.   Please remember to that taking the time to follow these simple daily precautions can help: wash your hands, stay six feet apart and wear a mask where recommended. 

Currently, DPHN is supporting 10 cases in isolation.

The next drive-through testing clinic will be Tuesday, September 1, 2020, in Roseburg. As a reminder, if you are having symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, sore throat or decreased sense of smell and taste, talk to your health care provider about being tested for COVID-19.

Congratulations Douglas County, we have successfully met the county metric guidelines for our schools to reopen according to Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Department of Education’s, Ready Schools, Safe Learners initiative. Douglas County has been under the 1% test positivity rate for the minimum three-week requirement.  Good job!  We just need to get the rest of the State to get their numbers down for the process to begin.   OHA and ODE officials are working directly with local schools and school boards to adopt and implement their school reopening and/or student learning plans. As a reminder, schools and this process are not a function of county government. We encourage you to contact your local school district for information about their 2020-21 academic school year education plans and discover what options are available for your child(ren). If you have questions about the criteria or metrics or need more information about the State’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners initiative during the COVID-19 pandemic, log onto their website, or contact OHA directly at (503) 947-2340 or ODE directly at (503) 947-5600.

Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving.

To date we have received over 2600 calls and had over 130 local volunteers who stepped up to staff the call center, including more than 45 licensed health care providers. The Douglas County COVID-19 Response Team express their deepest thanks to the volunteers, staff and the organizations that have devoted so many hours to the hotline over the last five months. Those organizations include: Douglas County Commissioners, DPHN, Douglas County IT Department, Aviva Health, Evergreen Family Medicine, UCAN, VA Medical Center, Douglas ESD, Mercy Medical Center, NOVA Urgent Care, Mercy Foundation, Umpqua Health, Red Cross, YMCA and the Boys and Girls Club.  So, if you have questions about anything COVID for need information on available local resources, please do not hesitate to reach out to the hotline for assistance.  The Douglas County COVID-19 Hotline number is (541) 464-6550 and is staffed from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, 7 days a week.

Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving.

We added the number of those in isolation that roughly correlates with the number of active cases.  The DCCRT noon case and daily update will report the Total Number of COVID-19 Cases, the number of positive test results (as of 12:00 pm that day), the number of presumptive, total currently hospitalized, total currently in isolation, total COVID-19 deaths and total negative test results in Douglas County.  Currently, DPHN is supporting 10 cases in isolation.

The next drive-through testing clinic will be Friday, August 28, 2020, in Roseburg. As a reminder, if you are having symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, sore throat or decreased sense of smell and taste, talk to your health care provider about being tested for COVID-19. Patients without a Primary Care Provider, that are looking for a COVID-19 test should contact the Sutherlin Aviva Health Clinic at (541) 459-3788. The first drive-through testing site was piloted in the county on March 17, 2020, there have been 1417 people tested in 65 drive-through clinics, while additional testing continues in hospitals, urgent cares and clinics. The drive-through clinics lead by DPHN, in conjunction with partner agencies including; Douglas County COVID-19 Response Team, Douglas County Board of Commissioners, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas County Public Works, local volunteers and local health professionals.

Updated August 20, 2020 - 1:58PM

It is Thursday, August 20, 2020, and as of 12:00 pm today, there is ONE person with a new positive test result since our noon case update yesterday.  The total number of cases (people with positive test results and presumptive) in Douglas County is now at 168*.  There are two hospitalized COVID patients.  One Douglas County patient is hospitalized out-of-the-area and the second hospitalized patient is not a resident of Douglas County, they are from out-of-state and are not reflected in our case numbers, but we wanted to note that they are being hospitalized locally at this time. 

Yesterday, Dr. Robert Dannenhoffer sadly confirmed the second COVID-19 related death of a resident of Douglas County. Our second COVID related death is an 80-year-old gentleman who passed away at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield, Oregon, on Wednesday, August 19, 2020.  He tested positive for COVID-19 on August 14, and was hospitalized on Sunday, August 16, 2020.  In the interest of privacy for the individual’s loved ones, no additional personal information will be released.  

“It is truly sad news that we lost another resident, friend and neighbor to COVID-19. This man had a family, people who loved and cared for him, and we are profoundly saddened to report his passing. We send our thoughts and prayers to the family that is left behind.  Again, we discovered that this case is due to travel out of the area and really want to stress how important it is to protect yourself and your family from contracting this deadly virus,” stated Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer. 

We wanted to take the opportunity to reiterate once again about how important it is to keep your family and loved ones safe during this pandemic.  Sadly, this case is another one directly linked to out-of-area travel, social gatherings and exposure to individuals that were unknowingly asymptomatic or mildly sick with COVID, that in turn infected their more vulnerable family members and this time with unfortunate and devastating results. The COVID-19 virus is still here, still infectious and will be around for quite some time. The bottom line is that everyone needs to take personal responsibility for their actions and adopt the proper precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to encourage residents to be cautious about traveling outside our county, and instead encourage our residents to delay travel, consider stay-cations and utilize phone or video calling with family and friends.  Reversing the increase of COVID-19 cases in our county is really up to YOU, our residents.  The DCCRT Team, under the direction of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners, along with Dr. Dannenhoffer and Douglas Public Health Network, would like to remind residents of the importance of being kind to one another and to take extra care in helping us to slow the spread of COVID-19 in order to protect your health, your family’s health and the health of our communities.  

Please remember to that taking the time to follow these simple daily precautions can help: wash your hands, stay six feet apart and wear a mask where recommended.   Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving. As more is learned about COVID, the clinical definition of recovery is evolving.  Due to the evolving nature of this definition, we have removed the column in our chart listing our recovered cases.  We added the number of those in isolation that roughly correlates with the number of active cases.  

The DCCRT noon case and daily update will report the Total Number of COVID-19 Cases, the number of positive test results (as of 12:00 pm that day), the number of presumptive, total currently hospitalized, total currently in isolation, total COVID-19 deaths and total negative test results in Douglas County.  Currently, DPHN is supporting 13 cases in isolation.

Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving. As more is learned about COVID, the clinical definition of recovery is evolving.  Due to the evolving nature of this definition, we have removed the column in our chart listing our recovered cases.  We added the number of those in isolation that roughly correlates with the number of active cases.  The DCCRT noon case and daily update will report the Total Number of COVID-19 Cases, the number of positive test results (as of 12:00 pm that day), the number of presumptive, total currently hospitalized, total currently in isolation, total COVID-19 deaths and total negative test results in Douglas County.  Currently, DPHN is supporting 27 cases in isolation.

Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19:

DPHN has created a new series of illustrated graphics to continue to emphasize how important it is for our citizens to help in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in Douglas County.  As we have discussed before, one of the ways you can help is to: stay home if you are sick, stay home if were exposed as a close contact to a positive COVID-19 patient, stay home if you are awaiting COVID-19 test results and especially stay home if you have tested positive for COVID-19.  Going to work when you feel you are, “only just a little sick” could potentially expose others to your illness and cause an unnecessary outbreak.  Our goal is to keep businesses and agencies open, maintain hospital and health care access and capacity, and have the best chance at reopening all of our schools to in-person instruction.  If you need help in order to stay home, talk to your employer about available programs or call our local COVID-19 Hotline at (541) 464-6550 for more information and a list of available resources.  The local COVID-19 Hotline is staffed by local volunteers from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, 7 days a week.

The next drive-through testing clinic will be today, Friday, August 7, 2020, in Roseburg. There will also be a testing clinic tomorrow, August 8, 2020 in Reedsport.  As a reminder, if you are having symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, sore throat or decreased sense of smell and taste, talk to your health care provider about being tested for COVID-19.

Advisory: Travel, Visitors, Going to Work While Sick and Social Gatherings:

Just like the old expression says, ‘prevention is the best medicine’, we continue to stress the importance of weighing your COVID-RISK and preventing the continued spread of the virus in Douglas County.  We want to keep businesses open, maintain hospital space, have access to services and have a better chance at reopening our schools to in-person instruction this Fall. Several of our recent positive test results have been directly linked to travel outside Douglas County, and especially those residents that have chosen to travel outside of Oregon. In addition to limiting travel, we are asking that you also limit attending social gatherings, stay home if you are sick and reschedule visits from out-of-the-area friends and family to a later date.  Reversing the trajectory of COVID-19 cases in our county is really up to YOU, our residents.  Data from CDC and OHA show that traveling and coming into contact with people from other areas, especially COVID-19 hot spots, DOES significantly increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19.  The COVID-19 virus is still here, still infectious and will be around for quite some time. The bottom line is that each and every person needs to take personal responsibility for their actions and adopt the proper precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Whatever your reason for traveling, going to work while sick, inviting Aunt Sally to come visit or attending a wedding or a pool party, we encourage you to please reconsider and really access the COVID-RISK to you, your family and your community. And remember to please follow these simple daily precautions as well: wash your hands, stay six feet apart and wear a mask where recommended.

COVID-RISK INDEX: Several businesses, agencies and individuals reached out to the DCCRT Team asking about the COVID-RISK Index chart we shared Tuesday, August 4, 2020 in our DCCRT Special Update.  The index was adapted from research done by Doctors from the University of Pennsylvania, George Washington University and the University of Arizona, and is an excellent illustration to help residents, employers and our communities evaluate their COVID-RISK. 

Currently, DPHN is supporting 26 cases in isolation

Reminder: We also want to encourage you to stay home if you are sick and seek medical advice to determine if you might have contracted COVID-19.  Going to work when you feel you are, “only just a little sick” could potentially expose others to your illness and cause an unnecessary outbreak. The COVID-19 virus is still here, still infectious and will be around for quite some time.

The bottom line is that each and every person needs to take personal responsibility for their actions and adopt the proper precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

OHA expanded their reporting for COVID-19 case management to now include presumptive COVID-19 cases in their total case number. DPHN is reporting the number of people with new positive test results and any new presumptives, and uses the OHA’s definition of presumptive as having had close contact with a known, confirmed COVID-19 case, showing symptoms and not yet having a positive nasal swab/PCR test for COVID-19.  Testing continues, as DPHN has been holding 2-3 clinics a week and hospitals, urgent cares and clinics continue to test. DPHN continues their epidemiologic investigations, identifying individuals who may have had close contact with individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19, advising and supporting quarantine and isolation.

Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving. As more is learned about COVID, the clinical definition of recovery is evolving.  Due to the evolving nature of this definition, we have removed the column in our chart listing our recovered cases.  We added the number of those in isolation that roughly correlates with the number of active cases.  The DCCRT noon case and daily update will report the Total Number of COVID-19 Cases, the number of positive test results (as of 12:00 pm that day), the number of presumptive, total currently hospitalized, total currently in isolation, total COVID-19 deaths and total negative test results in Douglas County.  Currently, DPHN is supporting 34 cases in isolation.

It is Wednesday, July 29, 2020, and as of 12:00 pm today, there are TWO people with new positive test results since our noon case update yesterday. The total number of cases (people with positive test results and presumptive) in Douglas County is now at 121*.

Reminder: Travel, Visiting and Social Gathering Caution: Several of our newest positives test results have been directly linked to travel outside Douglas County, and especially those residents that have chosen to travel outside of Oregon.  Data from CDC and OHA show that traveling and coming into contact with people from other areas, especially COVID-19 hot spots, DOES significantly increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19.   Additionally, we are seeing cases linked to close-contact at social gatherings, like birthday celebrations, sleep overs, sporting events and parties.  Unfortunately, that also means we are seeing younger and younger residents, including children and teens being added to those that have tested positive for COVID-19.  Whatever your reason for traveling or attending a party, we encourage you to please consider the risk and only go if you can do so in a COVID-19 safe manner.  The COVID-19 virus is still here, still

infectious and will be around for quite some time. So, before you travel, attend a party or invite your relatives from out of state to visit, you need to assess the risk to you, your family and to your local community. The bottom line is that each and every person needs to take personal responsibility for their actions and adopt the proper precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

The next drive-through testing clinic will be Friday, July 31, 2020, in Roseburg. As a reminder, if you are having symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, sore throat or decreased sense of smell and taste, talk to your health care provider about being tested for COVID-19.

While we are not able to provide case specifics, we wanted to reiterate some facts about the latest positive test results in Douglas County. In addition to positive cases being linked to travel, some of our recent cases are directly related to the increase in local social gatherings; like birthday celebrations, sleep overs, sporting events and parties. Unfortunately, that also means we are seeing younger and younger residents, including children and teens being added to those that have tested positive for COVID-19.

Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving. As more is learned about COVID, the clinical definition of recovery is evolving. Due to the evolving nature of this definition, we have removed the column in our chart listing our recovered cases. We added the number of those in isolation that roughly correlates with the number of active cases. The DCCRT noon case and daily update will report the Total Number of COVID-19 Cases, the number of positive test results (as of 12:00 pm that day), the number of presumptive, total currently hospitalized, total currently in isolation, total COVID-19 deaths and total negative test results in Douglas County. Currently, DPHN is supporting 40 cases in isolation.

Updated July 23, 2020 - 1:10PM

It is Thursday, July 23, 2020, and as of 12:00 pm today, there are TWENTY people with new positive test results since our noon case update yesterday. The total number of cases (people with positive test results and presumptive) in Douglas County is now at 107*.  

Sadly, today we are reporting the largest single-day increase of people with new positive test results since our first positive COVID-19 test result was reported on March 8, 2020.  The majority of new positive test results today are attributed to an ongoing investigation of a local workplace outbreak.  Additionally, due to the increase in test availability and the increase in those being tested nationwide, there is a backlog of tests at the COVID-19 lab sites that has created a longer than expected delay in the return of test results and an unexpected return of a large number of test results all at once.  

Today serves as a wakeup call for everyone in Douglas County. This virus is still very active, and it’s in Douglas County. It seems too simple to be true, but the way we stop the spread of this virus is to follow these simple recommendations: maintain a six-foot physical distance from others, wash your hands often, avoid group and social gatherings, wear a face covering where recommended, stay home if you are sick, curtail your travel and discourage those traveling from visiting you. It’s really that simple,” stated Commissioner Tim Freeman.

OHA to Report Workplace Outbreak of 20 or More Positive Test Results in Douglas County

OHA reported a workplace outbreak on July 22, 2020 at Norris Farms in Douglas County, after the business surpassed the state threshold for public disclosure of 5 or more positive tests for a business with more than 30 employees. Tomorrow, Friday, July 24, OHA plans to report that the outbreak at this workplace has now reached 20 or more positive test results. As of the date and time of this update, there are 22 workers at this workplace with positive tests. The case count includes all persons linked to the outbreak, which may include household members and other close contacts to employees. Local case investigation started on June 24, but the initial case count was below the threshold for public disclosure. State and county public health officials are working together with the business to address the outbreak, support and encourage isolation/quarantine for those that tested positive and their contacts, and protect the health of workers and their families.

 This is an unfortunate situation and we will continue to work closely with Norris Farms. I remain certain that the risk of this outbreak to the public is low. The increase in positive tests for this workplace is not totally unexpected, as many of the workers came from other States that have a high level or hot spots of COVID-19 cases.  Norris Farms continues to do all the right things from testing, changing operations to promote social distancing and hygiene, daily screening on site and supporting those positive cases and their contacts in quarantine and isolation. Norris worked with public health and completed more than 300 tests of their employees, and they continue to be tremendous in their support of those that are positive and their contacts,” stated Dr. Bob Dannenhofffer, Douglas County Public Health Officer.

Norris Farms is a family-owned and operated farm and has been in the Umpqua Valley since 1976. For more information about Norris Farms and their response to COVID-19, please visit their website at www.norrisblueberryfarms.com.

It is Wednesday, July 22, 2020, and as of 12:00 pm today, there is ONE person with a new positive test result and one new presumptive since our noon case update yesterday. The total number of cases (people with positive test results and presumptive) in Douglas County is now at 92*. 

Reminder: the majority of our new positives have been directly linked to travel outside Douglas County, and especially those residents that have chosen to travel outside of Oregon. Whatever your reason for traveling, we encourage you to please consider the risk and travel in a COVID-19 safe manner. The COVID-19 virus is still here, still infectious and will be around for quite some time.

The bottom line is that each and every person needs to take personal responsibility for their actions and adopt the proper precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

OHA expanded their reporting for COVID-19 case management to now include presumptive COVID-19 cases in their total case number. DPHN is reporting the number of people with new positive test results and any new presumptives, and uses the OHA’s definition of presumptive as having had close contact with a known, confirmed COVID-19 case, showing symptoms and not yet having a positive nasal swab/PCR test for COVID-19. Testing continues, as DPHN has been holding 2-3 clinics a week and hospitals, urgent cares and clinics continue to test. DPHN continues their epidemiologic investigations, identifying individuals who may have had close contact with individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19, advising and supporting quarantine and isolation.

Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving. As more is learned about COVID, the clinical definition of recovery is evolving. Due to the evolving nature of this definition, we have removed the column in our chart listing our recovered cases.

The next drive-through testing clinic will be today, Saturday, July 18, 2020, in Reedsport.  As a reminder, if you are having symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, sore throat or decreased sense of smell and taste, talk to your health care provider about being tested for COVID-19.

It is Friday, July 17, 2020, and as of 12:00 pm today, there are FOUR people with new positive test results since our noon case update yesterday. The total number of cases (people with positive test results and presumptive) in Douglas County is now at 79*.   

Reminder: the majority of our new positives have been directly linked to travel outside Douglas County, and especially those residents that have chosen to travel outside of Oregon.  Whatever your reason for traveling, we encourage you to please consider the risk and travel in a COVID-19 safe manner.  The COVID-19 virus is still here, still infectious and will be around for quite some time. Current data from CDC and OHA shows that traveling and coming into contact with people from other areas DOES significantly increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. So, before you travel, attend a party or invite your relatives from out of state to visit, you need to assess the risk to you, your family and to your local community. The bottom line is that each and every person needs to take personal responsibility for their actions and adopt the proper precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Click here for the link to our article about COVID-19 Travel Advice.

OHA expanded their reporting for COVID-19 case management to now include presumptive COVID-19 cases in their total case number. DPHN is reporting the number of people with new positive test results and any new presumptives, and uses the OHA’s definition of presumptive as having had close contact with a known, confirmed COVID-19 case, showing symptoms and not yet having a positive nasal swab/PCR test for COVID-19.  Testing continues, as DPHN has been holding 2-3 clinics a week and hospitals, urgent cares and clinics continue to test. DPHN continues their epidemiologic investigations, identifying individuals who may have had close contact with individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19, advising and supporting quarantine and isolation.

Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving. As more is learned about COVID, the clinical definition of recovery is evolving.  Due to the evolving nature of this definition, we have removed the column in our chart listing our recovered cases.  We added the number of those in isolation that roughly correlates with the number of active cases.  The DCCRT noon case and daily update will report the Total Number of COVID-19 Cases, the number of positive test results (as of 12:00 pm that day), the number

of presumptive, total currently hospitalized, total currently in isolation, total COVID-19 deaths and total negative test results in Douglas County.  Currently, DPHN is supporting 24 cases in isolation.

The next drive-through testing clinic will be today, Friday, July 17, 2020, in Roseburg, another in Reedsport on Saturday, July 18, 2020.  As a reminder, if you are having symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, sore throat or decreased sense of smell and taste, talk to your health care provider about being tested for COVID-19. Patients without a Primary Care Provider, that are looking for a COVID-19 test should contact the Sutherlin Aviva Health Clinic at (541) 459-3788.

Updated July 14, 2020 - 2:27PM

It is Tuesday, July 14, 2020, and as of 12:00 pm today, there are two NEW confirmed cases of COVID-19 since our noon case update yesterday. The total number of cases (confirmed and presumptive) in Douglas County is now at 66*.  Please note that one presumptive case was moved to confirmed today with the return of positive test results.  Since this case was already counted in our total cases when it was reported as presumptive, our total COVID-19 cases (confirmed and presumptive) will only increase by one today.     

Yesterday, we made the sad announcement that we had our first COVID-19 related death of a resident of Douglas County.  Due to the nature of the death (being reported as passing while out-of-the-state in Texas), and respect for the privacy for the individual’s loved ones, no additional information will be released pending the confirmation of notification of family members.  DPHN is working with OHA and Texas State Health Officials on the notification and documentation process for this case. At the time of this release, we are unclear if OHA has received all the case documentation from Texas.  So, while we are listing the death in our case chart starting today, OHA’s COVID-19 death statistics will most likely not be updated until they receive the official report.  Standard protocol for COVID-19 case management in the United States is that all cases and deaths are to be reported and recorded in the County of the individual’s official residence.

Updated May 14th, 2020 - 11:55AM

The following is an update from Douglas County on Phase One Reopening Guidelines:

Now that the Governor has approved Douglas County’s application, we can begin the Phase One Reopening process starting tomorrow, Friday, May 15, 2020, under her very specific state-mandated safety guidelines.  Your Douglas County Board of Commissioners would like to remind residents that the reopening process is being completely mandated by the state, and your local officials do not have the authority to enforce, change or approve any of these guidelines.  Here is what the Governor’s Phase One Reopening means for Douglas County residents.

The Governor’s Phase One Limited Reopening Sectors with Key Guidelines: 

Restaurants and bars for sit-down service 

Restaurants and bars in Douglas County may open for sit-down service, but only with adequate physical distancing and the wearing of face coverings by employees. Customers are encouraged to also wear face coverings, but of course, not while they’re eating.  https://sharedsystems.dhsoha.state.or.us/DHSForms/Served/le2342B.pdf


Personal care and services businesses, including barbers and salons 

Personal care businesses, such as salons, barber shops, and gyms may open in a very limited way. We will require physical distancing and increased sanitation, as well as a series of additional guidelines, like wearing face coverings and gloves at salons. Salons must serve customers by appointment only and maintain records for contact tracing. https://sharedsystems.dhsoha.state.or.us/DHSForms/Served/le2342F.pdf

Retail Businesses

Retail businesses can also open using physical distancing, as long as they can follow Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines.  It is recommended to notice guidelines to customers through proper signage, one-way flow in aisles, and using tape markings to delineate space.  https://sharedsystems.dhsoha.state.or.us/DHSForms/Served/le2342A.pdf

Childcare, summer school, and youth programs

Childcare, summer school, and youth programs will also be allowed to resume while adhering to certain guidelines. https://sharedsystems.dhsoha.state.or.us/DHSForms/Served/le2353.pdf

Local gatherings can increase in size to 25, again, with physical distancing.

            Further, the Governor stated that Douglas County must remain in Phase One for at least 21 days before becoming eligible to advance to Phase II. According to the state, if we begin to see significant increases in COVID-19 cases or community spread, the Oregon Health Authority will work with local public health officials to evaluate what actions should be taken, and if it could necessitate Douglas County moving back from Phase One to a stay-home status. Details on Phase Two and Three are forthcoming from the Governor, and will be based on data collected during Phase One. The Governor outline that the goal of the Phase Two would be to expand gathering size, allow some office work, and begin allowing visitation to congregate care.  Her Phase Three would include reopening concerts, conventions, and festivals.  The Governor already announced that all large gatherings should be canceled or significantly modified through at least September, and live-audience sporting events won't be possible until a reliable treatment or prevention is available.

Additionally, the Governor asked residents to continue following actions to stay safe and prevent the spread of the virus:

Vulnerable populations must still stay at home

Limited visitation to nursing homes, hospitals

Limited gatherings

Limited travel

Increased hygiene, cleaning & sanitation

Stay home when sick

Telework when possible

As a reminder, we need to continue to stay vigilant and work together to continue to control the spread of the virus, as we will be living with COVID-19 until there is a reliable treatment or prevention, which is still many months off.  Douglas County’s application was submitted on Friday, May 8, 2020 by Board Chair, Commissioner Chris Boice, who worked in conjunction with our Public Health Official, Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer to quickly complete and submit our reopening application to the Governor.  Douglas County continues to be recognized as leader in Oregon for our COVID-19 response for our drive-through testing, coordinated planning, prevention messaging and hospital/care facility capacity preparedness.

Douglas County Board of Commissioners received notice late last night that their application to begin the Phase One Reopening process in Douglas County has been approved by Oregon’s Governor.  The first phase of the reopening process will begin for county businesses on Friday, May 15, 2020.  Douglas County will be among the first of Oregon’s counties to start the process of reopening businesses and kick start our economy after the mandated closures were issued by the Governor in her Executive Order #20-12 dated March 17, 2020 in response to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. 

Douglas County’s application was submitted on Friday, May 8, 2020 by Board Chair, Commissioner Chris Boice, who worked in conjunction with our Public Health Official, Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer to quickly complete and submit our reopening application to the Governor.
