Attributing safety measures, Lane County reports slow but steady decline in new COVID cases
Public health officials said conditions continue to improve in Lane County, with a slow and steady downward trend of COVID-19 cases.
The county is still seeing daily new cases in the double digits but there hasn’t been a triple digit day for some time.
Steve Adams, COVID-19 Incident Commander for Lane County, said, “we are seeing fewer cases, fewer outbreaks. And, you know, many of the health measures that folk in the community have implemented are certainly paying rewards now.”
Adams said, based on the seven day average thresholds set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Lane County has moved from “high” level to the “substantial” level of community spread of the disease.
