COVID-19 hospitalizations

St. Charles on Monday reported it had 24 COVID patients; one is in the ICU. 

Of those 24 patients, 10 are fully vaccinated. 

The one patient in the ICU is not fully vaccinated. 

The number represents those with “active COVID” upon admission and require special isolation or treatment. It does not include patients who are there for other reasons and also happen to test positive for COVID.

**A person is considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 ≥ two weeks after receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) or ≥ two weeks after receipt of the single dose of the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.**

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 304, which is 38 fewer than yesterday. There are 52 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 12 fewer than yesterday.

Note: Please do not visit an emergency department for COVID-19 testing unless you require emergency care for your symptoms.

Emergency departments in Oregon are under significant strain. You can find a test here. If you have a medical condition that doesn’t require emergency care, contact your provider. An urgent care center may also help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.
