EUGENE, Ore. -- Lane County Public Health announced Thursday that next week they will roll out community testing in Eugene.
This comes after rural testing has proven successful in towns such as Florence, Oakridge, and Mapleton.
Lowell and Cottage Grove will also have free testing on the July 14 and 16 respectively.
Jason Davis with Lane County Public Health also highlighted trends that have changed in how coronavirus moves.
He said while last week 10% of cases were travel-related, today it's 20%.
He also said a younger demographic is getting ill with 45% of cases being in people under 30.
Before, the most affected age group was those 30 to 49.
He said workplace transmission, small group gatherings, and household transmissions contribute to these numbers.
"We're seeing a little bit of a disconnect there where folks are reporting that they're having small gatherings, but they're not wearing a face covering and they're not wearing their face covering and we are seeing some cases so I thought it was important to call that out," he said.
