Oregon Health Authority | COVID-19 Updates


Oregon Health Authority logo

On March 8, 2020, Gov. Kate Brown declared a state of emergency to address the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) serves as the lead agency for the public health response. OHA is working with Gov. Brown and local public health officials to monitor and suppress COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations and reduce the health and economic impacts and disparities that have stemmed from the COVID-19 pandemic in Oregon.

For general information on COVID-19 in Oregon,  call 211 or visit 211.info.

You can help stop COVID-19 from spreading. Wash your hands and cover your cough. Stay home if you are sick and avoid contact with people who are sick. If you are having a medical emergency, call 911.

 Masks Required Statewide

Masks, face shields and face coverings are currently required statewide for indoor public spaces (for example, grocery stores, pharmacies, public transit, personal services providers, restaurants, bars, retail stores, and more). In addition, face coverings are required in outdoor public spaces when physical distancing is not possible. Children age 5 and up are required to wear a face covering. People with a disability or medical condition may request accommodation from the business if they cannot wear one.


 School Health and Safety Metrics

Governor Brown and leaders from OHA and the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) announced new guidance about schools and how they might operate this fall. There is no simple, statewide answer for every school in Oregon. It is important to get students back to class, but how we do that depends on a number of important factors. Oregon public health officials have developed evidence-based metrics to help school boards and school districts make decisions about how they can safely reopen schools. Visit ODE's Ready Schools, Safe Learners web page for more information.

1This includes cases confirmed by diagnostic testing and presumptive cases. Presumptive cases are people without a positive diagnostic test who have COVID-19-like symptoms and had close contact with a laboratory confirmed case. Antibody test results are not included in our data. County of residence for cases may change as new information becomes available. If changes occur, we will update our counts accordingly.

2For additional details on individuals who have died from COVID-19 in Oregon, please refer to our press releases.

3This includes cases who test negative and are not epi-linked to a confirmed case.

4Ever hospitalized, if available, as reported to OPERA. OPERA is the state of Oregon’s electronic disease surveillance system for COVID-19. Cases are considered hospitalized if they were ever admitted to the hospital for inpatient care during the their COVID-19 illness. Cases who were examined in but not admitted to a hospital may be incorrectly classified as hospitalized until interview and medical record review are complete, leading to fluctuations in the number of hospitalized COVID-19 cases.

5As reported to Oregon’s Hospital Capacity Web System (HOSCAP). Every hospital in Oregon is asked to submit data twice daily HOSCAP. Hospital staff are asked to enter bed capacity information, by type, as well as the numbers of patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 illness who are currently hospitalized at the time of data entry. These data may conflict with hospitalization status in OPERA due to case reporting and investigation lags and temporary discrepancies in case classification.

Notes:

  1. Because community transmission is occurring in Oregon and recommendations on social or physical distancing are in place, as of March 17, 2020, we no longer report daily counts of persons under monitoring.
  2. Confirmation by CDC of laboratory results from the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory is no longer required; therefore as of March 15, 2020, we no longer note the number of CDC-confirmed cases.
  3. Reporting of travel history is not available for cases reported to OHA by commercial laboratories; therefore as of March 15, 2020, we no longer include information about travel history.
  4. As of March 25, 2020, we are including the number of pending test results available from the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory (OSPHL). The OSPHL serves as the first source of testing during an outbreak and as commercial labs come online, OSPHL increases focus on priority testing. Commercial labs have the ability to conduct testing on an industrial scale, but do not report pending results, therefore we only include pending results from OSPHL.
  5. As of March 26, 2020, OHA is releasing a COVID-19 Daily Update (formerly called the Situational Status Report). Previous updates are posted on OHA's COVID-19 News page.

For daily counts of cases, deaths and negative tests on weekends, please see our weekend press releases available here.

1Includes cases confirmed by diagnostic testing and presumptive cases. Presumptive cases are people without a positive diagnostic test who have COVID-19-like symptoms and close contact with a laboratory confirmed case. Antibody test results are not included in our data.



 Governor's Orders and OHA Guidance

Resources


Governor’s Joint Task Force for Health Care Systems Response to COVID-19

The purpose of this task force is to provide guidance promoting a unified response to the COVID-19 outbreak throughout Oregon, creating a framework that will best support health care system preparedness and response.


Oregon Governor Kate Brown has outlined a phased approach to reopening Oregon’s communities and economy in an effort to allow individual counties to begin reopening if they have met specific health and safety criteria. These criteria are designed to ensure each county has the capacity to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect those at highest risk of severe disease as we work to build a safe and strong Oregon.

Getting Tested

COVID-19 Testing in Oregon Preubas de COVID-19 en Oregón

Many people are interested in testing for COVID-19 out of concern for themselves and their loved ones. If you have trouble breathing or feel very ill, contact your healthcare provider or, in case of emergency, call 911. Healthcare providers may decide to have you first tested for other illnesses, like the flu, based on your possible exposure history and any other symptoms you might have.

Call before you go. If you have flu-like symptoms or have reason to think you might have COVID-19, let your healthcare provider know before you visit. This will help avoid exposing anyone else at the provider’s facility.

If you have health insurance: Contact your health insurer or visit the Department of Consumer and Business Services website.

If you don't have health insurance: If you do not have health insurance, you should apply for OHP coverage, which fully covers the cost of getting tested for COVID-19 if needed. If you don’t want to sign up for OHP, you can see a clinician through your county health clinic or a ​federally qualified health center (FQHC).



On June 10, the Oregon Department of Education shared Ready Schools, Safe Learners, the initial guidance for public and private K-12 schools to develop an operational blueprint for the 2020-21 school year. Returning Oregon students to on-site learning is an enormous responsibility, and that responsibility is shared by schools, districts, and local and state health and education agencies. OHA is a close partner to ODE in developing this guidance, and supporting schools and districts in development of their operational blueprint.
