On March 8, Gov. Kate Brown declared a state of emergency to address the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon. An Executive Order issued March 23 directs Oregonians to stay home except for essential needs. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) serves as the lead agency for the public health response.

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. For general information on COVID-19 in Oregon, call 211. If you are having a medical emergency, call 911.

1This includes cases confirmed by diagnostic testing and presumptive cases. Presumptive cases are those without a positive diagnostic test who present COVID-19-like symptoms and had close contact with a confirmed case. 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 Orpheus. Orpheus is the state of Oregon’s electronic disease surveillance system for reportable diseases. 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 Orpheus due to case reporting and investigation lags and temporary discrepancies in case classification.


  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) which is produced jointly with Oregon Office of Emergency Management. It details the overall picture of the COVID-19 response across government agencies. Previous updates are posted on OHA's COVID-19 News page.

Daily Update

Produced jointly by the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Office of Emergency Management, this update details the overall picture of the COVID-19 response across government agencies, including information on hospital capacity and PPE inventory.

Weekly Report

 Governor's Orders and OHA Guidance


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

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).

Visit our FAQ page for more testing information

Spread facts, not fear.

Oregon is seeing an increase in incidents of discrimination and harassment related to the COVID-19 virus. It is important that all people, businesses, and other organizations act on facts, not bias or xenophobia. Health officials confirm there are no links between COVID-19 infection and a person’s race, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, ability, or national origin. COVID-19 can infect anyone who is exposed to it, and anyone can spread COVID-19.

On Wednesday, April 8, Governor Brown announced that Oregon’s K-12 schools will remain physically closed through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. School, and learning, will continue using remote means.

OHA knows we are asking a lot of Oregonians in order to protect those who are particularly vulnerable to this virus, and there is a lot of fear and anxiety in our communities. Educators are the heart of our schools, which in turn are the heart of our communities. In the wake of COVID-19’s arrival in Oregon, our schools are facing operational and business challenges.

We stand with the governor and our education partners as they work to support students and their families.
