Note: Please do not visit an emergency department for COVID-19 testing, unless you require emergency care for your symptoms.

Emergency departments in Oregon are under significant strain responding to the current surge in COVID-19. You can find a test here.  

If you have a medical condition that doesn’t require emergency care, contact your provider. An urgent care center may also help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.

  1. Perhaps I should march around with a sign and put out 41 pairs of shoes representing the number of deaths today. I am a member of the silent majority that have gotten their shots and boosters and continue to distance and wear a mask in public. We don’t get news coverage because we quietly do the right thing every day and try to protect our neighbors and fellow citizens and loved ones. We don’t throw tantrums about our “freedom” or our “rights.” We act like adults and I would appreciate some news coverage about all of us working to recover from this deadly pandemic. Then again, that isn’t “news” is it?

      1. Articulately said but your right it’s news with positive twinge and news agencies frown on that because fear mongering sells. They 🐀 her keep us fearful like 🐔 little

    1. Perhaps you should take care of yourself and let others do the same. Anybody that wants to get vaccinated can do so. I’m vaccinated. My wife isn’t. Neither of us pressured the other. Neither of us want to carry signs or vaccine-shame others. We both avoid crowds, shops, restaurants, etc. We are respectful of other people’s space and choices and couldn’t care less what they choose to do. That is THEIR business, not ours – or yours.

      1. Perfect attitude. Forcing others to do what you think is best rarely works out well. When you convince people with your “facts” in a logical manner, you will get the best response and the most people doing what you think is correct. In this situation what is best for one person’s situation may not be best for another person’s situation. Let each person freely decide what is best for them. Florida used persuasion instead of mandates and their vaccination rate is about the same as Oregon. Plus Florida never really shut down or were forced to use masks. The latest data shows Florida has a lower Covid rate per 100K than does Oregon.

        1. If you’re going to use ‘facts’ to try and support your argument then use correct ‘facts.’ But then the correct facts don’t support your argument:

          Florida’s Covid cases is approximately 171,102 per 1m, third highest in the US and double that of Oregon which is 83,781 per 1m, 35th in US. Florida’s deaths are approximately 2707 per 1m. And again over double that of Oregon’s 1002 per 1m.

  2. Got my booster today in Portland because I couldn’t get an appointment in Bend. I think a lot of the anti-vaxers are diatribing and getting vaccinated while blasting their anti-fax disinformation to the public. Shame on them.

    1. I am not anti-fax. I just think that there are much better ways to send files in the modern age. I prefer PDF as you can send very large files very quickly. With that type of system, you can send the vaccination records of 40,000 states employees to media outlets with just a click of your mouse.

  3. At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days (Fig. 1). In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people. Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days. The lack of a meaningful association between percentage population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases is further exemplified, for instance, by comparison of Iceland and Portugal. Both countries have over 75% of their population fully vaccinated and have more COVID-19 cases per 1 million people than countries such as Vietnam and South Africa that have around 10% of their population fully vaccinated.

    1. “More than 90,000 deaths attributed to COVID-19 between June and September occurred among unvaccinated American adults. Those are the findings of the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), a nonprofit focused on health issues.”

    2. It is a troubling study, but more troubling is the fact that many people in the US are unwilling to do anything that study recommends as a mitigation strategy.

    3. I am vaccinated so if I do get COVID-19 I’m substantially less likely to die or have serious illness from COVID-19. Take today’s local stats: St Charles has 17 patients in ICU, 15 on ventilators. All 17 are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated. This is consistent with the last few months local stats and nationwide stats of vaccinated individuals less likely to be in the ICU from COVID-19.
