COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 535, which is 12 fewer than yesterday. There are 125 COVID-19 patients in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds, which is six fewer than yesterday. 

Yesterday’s hospitalization data was inadvertently left out of the daily press release. Those numbers were 547 hospitalized patients with confirmed COVID-19 and 131 COVID-10 patients in ICU beds.

The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.
