Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced Tuesday afternoon that Baker County will remain in the extreme-risk category for the spread of COVID-19 through at least Feb. 11.

A total of 25 of Oregon's 36 counties will be in that group from Jan. 29 through Feb. 11.

Baker County has been at extreme risk, based on the state's metrics, for all but the first two weeks of January since the state adopted the risk level system at the start of December.

Restrictions in extreme-risk counties include a ban on indoor dining at restaurants and bars.
