Oregon COVID-19 Update: 9 new cases in Deschutes Co.; 75 statewide

The Oregon Health Authority on Wednesday reported 75 new positive and presumptive positive COVID-19 cases and four new deaths.

Statewide, 3,701 people have tested positive for the disease and 144 people have died.

In Deschutes County, nine new cases bring the total to 116. There have been 20 new cases reported in the last three days; 82 Deschutes County COVID patients have recovered.

Crook County has had one confirmed case while there have been 24 cases in Jefferson County, most being on the Warm Springs Reservation.

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.
