DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore.-- Officials announced that they have identified the first case of coronavirus in Douglas County Sunday.

According to county public health officer Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer, the individual is a resident of Douglas County and is medically stable. 

A presumptive case means that someone has tested positive at an in-state lab using CDC test kits, but still has to be confirmed by the CDC's own labs.

This case was one of 7 new ones announced by Governor Kate Brown in a press conference Sunday. This brings the state total to 14.

Even though the virus has made it's way to Douglas County, some residents told KEZI 9 News that they're not worried at all. 

“I’m gonna go home and wash my hands before I have lunch, but I’m not going to panic or change what I do in my life,” said Kimberly Turner, a resident.

Experts said these cases are all community spread or spread due to contact with a previous case. None of the 7 new cases were spread due to travel.

Officials tell KEZI 9 News they will be meeting in private shortly before sharing more information with the public. They have not yet shared if the case was community spread or travel-related.

This is a developing story. KEZI 9 News will have a live report from Roseburg on KEZI 9 News at 5 and 6 with the latest details.
