Oregon COVID-19 Update: 72 new cases; 4 deaths brings total to 113

The state’s death toll from COVID-19 jumped to 113 Tuesday after Oregon health officials announced four new deaths.

Oregon Health Authority reported 72 new confirmed cases and 8 new presumptive cases of COVID-19 bringing the state total to 2,817

Deschutes County reported one new case, bringing its total to 80. Sixty patients have recovered.

There has been one case in Crook County and 14 in Jefferson County.

Statewide, more than 62,500 people have tested negative for the disease including more than 2,800 in Central Oregon.

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.
