(Update: OHA releases details on deaths)

544 new cases; OHA pausing planned rollout of exposure notification app

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 33 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,427, the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday. There were three newly reported deaths in Central Oregon -- one each in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties.

OHA also reported 544 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, bringing the state total to 167,658.

Oregon pausing exposure notification app

This week, OHA decided to pause the ongoing planning of the Exposure Notification (EN) application project rollout for Oregon to focus on vaccinations and other priority efforts to end the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Over the past six months, OHA has benefitted from discussions with local public health departments and other partners, which highlighted the benefits and costs of any early notification app, including the intensive efforts state and local health officials would need to undertake to promote the app and address likely gaps in its adoption across Oregon’s diverse communities, as well as the added contact tracing demands full adoption would place on county public health staff.

OHA appreciates the feedback agency staff heard from our partners working in local communities. State health officials reached the decision after consultation with Gov. Kate Brown’s office.

OHA Public Health Director Rachael Banks said: “Approximately two dozen states have chosen not to deploy smartphone-based apps at this time and instead to rely on other tools to stop the spread of COVID-19. Oregon is focused on building trust with people in communities across the state to get all Oregonians vaccinated and sustain the other COVID-19 prevention practices, such as wearing a mask, staying physically distant and limiting the size and frequency of indoor social get-togethers. These strategies have prevented more than 4,000 COVID-19 deaths in our state. We’ll continue to prioritize these approaches because they remain our best bet to end the pandemic.”

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported that 32,955 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Tuesday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 21,170 doses were administered on Monday and 11,785 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Monday.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,040,314 doses of Pfizer, 938,182 doses of Moderna and 51,618 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of today, 784,476 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 1,290,755 people who have had at least one dose.

Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to lag in their reporting. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of their data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).

To date, 1,306,305 doses of Pfizer, 1,187,500 doses of Moderna and 168,100 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change. OHA's dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, and Oregon’s dashboard has been updated Tuesday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 163, which is 14 fewer than Monday. There are 42 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is unchanged from Monday.

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.

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.

St. Charles Bend reported four COVID-19 patients as of 4 a.m. Tuesdsay, one of whom was on a ventilator in the ICU.

    1. I’ll let ONE through, rather than email you privately, to a) show people what foul screen names some people use that I might miss in the rush to get through 100s of comments a day and b) to advise you that if you don’t change your offensive screen name, you will be banned.

      1. I changed it Barns….but how come you let people post rude comments and names about trump for 4 years without threatening to ban? Hypocrite.

        1. You have no idea what I’ve deleted/who I’ve banned. I could care less what your political view is. I make the ‘offensive’ calls and stand by them, proudly, as folks have been kind enough to say they think I’m fair despite all the attacks.

          1. Well… we know you haven’t banned NeverTrumper- kuya- tiozo- fester- frog eyes- and that idiot out in redmond… all the same person BTW ! I think your biggest mistake though is to believe them “folks” who say you’re fair- of course they will say that- they are reflect your same political ideology. Your challenge as a moderator is to receive “no kind” words- no acknowledgements- you are supposed to the ref or umpire in the game that is so good that nobody notices ! Instead- you’ve used your position to alienate- divide- and frustrate many who really can’t understand how you would allow ass-hat- mother ****** and orange anus… but not allow “China” !!! And for the record- I never attack you- a lot of what I post is intended to get you to think about the other side of the aisle out there- i challenge your liberal stance and demand fair and equal treatment for those who come to this site hoping one day to read something positive and uplifting about our regional ranchers- farmers- church-goers… instead- it’s been four years of Trump bashing and cheap pot shots at his supporters… going into a second year now of Kovid Kate’s little virus- the new cases pile up- the death count rises… but I see where the calves and lambs could care less !

            1. You have NO proof they are all the same person, and I don’t and never will care. You of course conveniently forget the many folks who have said to your “face” here that they disagree with me politically (assuming my politics) but support the moderating decisions I make, by and large. To claim I banned the word “China” is typical stupidity, but we DID hear from a person – yes, that’s right, just one – who considers calling it the “China virus” a racist term. Of course China is not a race, per se.
              You ALWAYS attack me. And then deny doing so. You are as shifty as they come. The fact I allow so much of your stuff online disproves your false allegations about me. So thanks for proving me right! Every night. I have other things to do, but you apparently don’t. You consider this… “fun,” or a “public service,” or something other than what it is – 1,000s of words that convince no one of anything and are read by fewer and fewer people, because it’s all so predictable, not to mention untrue. You can’t settle for claiming that your hated governor is “trying to” destroy the state, a more discussable rational view, instread you claim over and over that she has destroyed it – and yet you, I and many others thankfully have our jobs, disproving the points you falsely make over and over.
              If you want me to think better about the “other side of the aisle,” you could be a better representative of it, and say something true once in a while. Or just say LESS.
              But you come from a sad, misguided but thankfully small, hateful segment of society who believes anyone who disagrees with them is their “enemy,” and that your side does no wrong and the other does no right. It’s a terrible world view and deserves to be ignored. I don’t have that luxury.

              1. “You have NO proof they are all the same person”… But you do ! As you can see the IP addresses- which explains why you didn’t come out and say “No”- they are not the same person. Once again- your liberal logic fools some of the people some of the time.. guess !

                1. I didn’t say I couldn’t find out. I said I don’t know or care, not about to waste the time to go digging. Too much real work to do, worthy of my time. For all I know, you have 6 screen names. Don’t care.

          2. Don’t let these guys get to you, Barney. Trolls were funny for about 15 minutes back in ’98…the last good one retired from Usenet. What we have here are pretenders to a throne they will never acquire.

        2. You are correct- Barney allowed his personal political beliefs to interfere with his ability to moderate this site objectively- it’s not all his fault- he’s only human and liberals will argue till they are blue in the face- “Hillary in a landslide”- when that didn’t materialize- the vast majority sold their souls to the devil ! The real problem however is with the higher ups who insist on a single moderator- whether it be due to budget constraints or petty laziness- it simply doesn’t work- and that has been proven here time and time again.

          1. You may get your wish “wishy.” We may go to a system where there is ‘community moderation’ – upvotes/downvotes, likes/dislikes – and folks can weigh in on their own.
            Good luck with that.
            I’ve never written, said or edited – or heck, seen on our site – a story that said ‘Hillary in a landslide.’
            Your falsehoods are legion.

      2. As a person who worked in the online department of a Gannett newspaper I feel for you. We finally just shut comments down due to the vile comments.

  1. Whoaaaa- 33 deaths- 500 new cases ??? Doosh County back in the time-out corner while Jefferson and Crook open “all” the way up ??? No surprise ! Loudmouths out in Bend have been runnin’ their pie holes for months on end about how a Joke Biden Presidency would solve the states problems… then Little Lyin Joey showed up and admitted… he had no plan- just “cmon man- wear a mask” ! You all got voters remorse yet- well you should ! President Trump fought like hell to meet every need of the American people- only to have the media and the Demokant party throw up road block after road block… now this is the result- a mild virus out of control- no end in sight- the state in ongoing lock-down- murders in Portland up 1600% … But hey- ya got yer guy and gal in the White House ! This is a national failure- no wonder the world is laughing at the US of A- especially you Bend ! Go ahead- wave that Demokrat flag now !!!

    1. The American people do need a person in the White House capable of producing coherent sentence structure. Trump was kinda awful at that. Look at Obama and Clinton….bad Presidents but excellent speech makers. Two terms. Trump makes Bush 43 look like Edward Everett. Maybe he can join Toastmasters International with his free time and make another run at it.

      1. The American people need someone in the White House who get’s things done at the federal level and leaves the states alone ! Your smooth talkin’ Obama clung to his teleprompter for eight years- spent all that time ruining the US economy- screwing up international relations- and dividing the nation through partisan politics and race baiting back home. Trump comes along and gets things done- fixes the economy- stages global peace- and improves the lives of minorities more than any other President before him… and he did it all while fending off fake impeachments- attacks to his family- false stories of infidelity and daily constant bullying and harassment by a colluding and corrupt US media that now stands around slack-jawed saying “what- who me” ??? Joe Biden is a bumbling fool incapable of your proper sentence structure. He too clings to set dialogue and rarely makes public appearances… you seem to be more obsessed with a President no longer in office than the babbling geriatric who now pretends to be your leader… I can’t help but think you must be disappointed !

        1. The economy was already strong when Trump won election with the help of Fake News. He made the economy go to levels never seen before by deregulating environmental laws allowing corporations to pollute at unprecedented levels not seen since the 60’s. Trump made it possible for all Americans including minorities to obtain jobs that do not pay enough to pay the bills. Trump then became the most socialist president since FDR after the pandemic by pumping trillions of dollars into the stock market and gave investors giant payoffs as if it was all rigged then gave us common folk a few thousand bucks. He did not start a war, the only positive of his presidency but you can’t see it because you can’t understand the triple bottom line.

          1. Complete BS ! Obama was a disaster- it’s why America voted for Trump. and it took a virus attack from china and a colluding media to convince you all that Groper Joe Biden is the answer to your prayers… so “Oh No Joe” spends the first month of his administration admitting he has no plan to combat the Wuhan Bat- he’ll systematically destroy the US economy (like Obama did) he’ll drive fuel prices through the roof… you seen your gas bill lately- and consumer goods prices- skyrocketing… back to never ending war in Syria- Iraq- Saber rattling with China and Russia… just like the good old days of 16% black unemployment- Biden will show you once again what a real racist looks like ! Damn dummy- a year into your Demokrat initiated pandemic hoax- and you still can’t see the duck for what it is ??? Hilarious !

    1. Yep. You know better than me, my career in medical science and research, and the vast majority of my peers. You’ve got us all. This is just something big government has coerced us all into supporting. You’ve got the inside track, genius.

  2. How’s the cesspool of whiny reality deniers doing today? What windmills are you tilting at? Oh never mind, I see it’s still all about Kate Brown. She sure gives you reactives meaning in life, doesn’t she?
