Oregon COVID-19 Update: 46 new cases; 3 new deaths

Oregon health officials reported 46 new cases of COVID-19 Tuesday, bringing the statewide total to 2,002. Three new deaths bring the death toll in Oregon to 78.

More than 39,000 people have tested negative for the disease, including 1,689 people in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties.

For the second day in a row, Deschutes County reported no new cases.

Currently 64 people have tested positive for the disease and the Deschutes County Health Department reports 70% of the patients are considered “recovered.”

And as of Tuesday afternoon, St. Charles had no COVID-19 patients on-site. 

Crook and Jefferson counties have reported one positive case each, although the Jefferson County case involves a patient not currently living in the state.

The new COVID-19 cases reported today are in the following counties: Clackamas (2), Coos (1), Klamath (2), Linn (1), Marion (10), Multnomah (22), Umatilla (2), Wasco (1), and Washington (7).

After receiving updated residency information, Benton and Yamhill Counties both transferred cases to other Oregon counties yesterday. This led to an overall increase of 46 new cases statewide, and an increase of 48 new cases for the counties.

The Weekly Report also includes death totals and rates, and cases and deaths from all care facilities and senior living communities that have three or more confirmed COVID-19 cases or one or more death. You can read the Weekly Report here.
