Local public health officials confirmed on Monday that Jackson County has become a leader in coronavirus testing within the state of Oregon.
Jackson County has done more testing for COVID-19 per capita than any other county in the state of Oregon, county officials confirmed on Monday.

“Asante, Providence Medford Medical Center, La Clinica, Mercy Flights and others in the medical community have done an amazing job getting people tested,” shares Mark Orndoff, Jackson County Health and Human Services Director. “They are outstanding partners in keeping the people of Jackson County as safe as possible during this COVID-19 pandemic.”
