Oregon Health Officials Report New 177 Coronavirus Cases

Oregon Health Officials report 177 coronavirus cases. There are 3 new death tolls. Oregon has identified 201,649 confirmed and presumptive cases of coronavirus since the pandemic began. The state has also recorded 2,674 deaths related to the virus. A majority of the most recent coronavirus patients were found in Washington (48), Multnomah (35) and Marion (25) counties.

Oregon Health Officials also reported the number of hospitalized COVID patients dropped by eleven to 238 in hospitals across the state. Of those hospitalized by the virus, 67 are in the ICU. The Oregon Health Authority said the state is administering an average of just under 23,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses each day.

As of Tuesday, 1,853,468 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. 2,242,712 people have had at least one dose. Last month, Brown announced counties that have vaccinated at least 65% of their adult population with at least one dose of a vaccine and have submitted an equity plan can move to the lower risk level.

Governor said that once 70% of the state’s adults have received at least one dose of a vaccine, all COVID-19 restrictions in the state will be lifted, although some restrictions like social distancing and mask-wearing may remain in effect under CDC guidance.

Clatsop County was moved from moderate to the lower risk level, and Lane and Polk’s counties were moved from high to moderate. Clackamas County is at high risk while Multnomah and Washington’s counties are at lower risk. Currently, there are no counties at extreme risk.
