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.

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 29 cases in isolation.

Getting Tested & Testing Clinics

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. 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.

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

Advisory: Travel, Visiting and Social Gatherings: We continue to stress the importance of accessing your COVID-RISK. (Click here to read our special COVID   Report on COVID-RISK issued earlier today) 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. Reversing the trajectory of COVID-19 cases in our county is really up to YOU, our residents.  Contracting the coronavirus is very preventable.  The virus is a hazard to your health and the health of those around you.  COVID-19 is dangerous in that you could unwittingly expose someone you love to the virus, potentially infect someone with a compromised immune system or cause someone to get seriously ill or die.  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.  Whatever your reason for traveling, going to work while sick, inviting Aunt Sally to come visit or attending a wedding or a party, we encourage you to please reconsider and access the COVID-RISK to you, your family and your community.  The COVID-19 virus is still here, still infectious and will be around for quite some time.

Advisory: Travel, Visiting and Social Gatherings: We continue to stress the importance of limiting your travel.  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 weddings, 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 safe manner. 

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. So, before you travel, attend a party, invite your relatives from out of state to visit or go to work sick, 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. Previously, we used the OHA definition for recovered that considered people recovered if they were 10 days from onset and symptoms were improving.

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. 

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.

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. 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 1224 people tested in 54 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 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 Saturday, July 18, 2020, and as of 12:00 pm today, there are FIVE 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 83*.  

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.

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.

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.

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 July 13, 2020 - 1:12PM

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.  

Updated May 14th, 2020 - 8:04AM

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.
