On Friday, ten Oregon counties — Washington County among them — will move from the “extreme risk” category, nine to the high risk category and one to the moderate risk category as COVID-19 stats improve in most of the state, Governor Kate Brown announced Tuesday morning. 

Two other counties also improved enough to drop to the lowest category, but one county — Lake — will move up from lower risk to moderate risk. 

The counties are expected to remain where they are in the governor's framework for two weeks, from Friday Feb. 12 through Feb. 25.
