Oregon COVID-19 Update: 48 new cases; 2 deaths


COVID-19 has claimed two more lives in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 147, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday.

The OHA reported 45 new confirmed cases and three new presumptive cases of COVID-19 today bringing the state total to 3,864.

The new cases reported today are in the following counties: Clackamas (5), Clatsop (2), Curry (1), Jackson (3), Linn (2), Malheur (4), Marion (8), Multnomah (11), Polk (1), Umatilla (1), Washington (10).

In Deschutes County, the number of cases actually went down one to 116 after a presumptive case wasn’t confirmed; 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.
