The Oregon Health Authority on Thursday reported 24 new positive and presumptive positive COVID-19 cases and one new death.
Statewide, 3,725 people have tested positive for the disease and 145 people have died.
In Deschutes County, one new cases bring the total to 117; 85 Deschutes County COVID patients have recovered.
Crook County has had one confirmed case while one new case in Jefferson County brings its total to 25.
Thursday, the OHA provided a new Public Health Indicators Dashboard to enable communities across Oregon to monitor COVID-19 in the state.
The dashboard, which will be updated weekly on Thursdays, provides a transparent report that presents complex epidemiological data in an interactive, easy-to-understand way.
The dashboard displays three key indicators:
- COVID-19 disease
- Severe COVID-19 burden
- Active Monitoring Capacity
Note: The state is now including presumptive COVID-19 cases in its daily reports, consistent with recently amended guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
A presumptive case is someone who does not have a positive PCR test — a “Polymerase Chain Reaction” that confirms if a person has COVID-19 — but is showing symptoms and has had close contact with a confirmed case. If they later test positive by PCR, those will be recategorized as confirmed cases.Oregon-COVID-19-Daily-Update (2)
Note: Deschutes County has been providing more demographic information on its patients, although those numbers sometimes aren’t in concert with the state reports and are reported at a later time.
