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.

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.

Cases and deaths

Due to an unexpected technical glitch, Opera, the COVID-19 case database, was down from 6 p.m. on Oct. 22 through 9 p.m. Oct. 23. As a result, daily case counts for those days were lower than expected.

That disruption accounts for Tuesday’s higher case tally, which arises as local public health authorities work through that backlog of cases.

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Tuesday are in the following counties: Baker (4), Benton (44), Clackamas (113), Clatsop (3), Columbia (22), Coos (24), Crook (24), Curry (14), Deschutes (129), Douglas (41), Gilliam (3), Harney (3), Hood River (11), Jackson (86), Jefferson (15), Josephine (23), Klamath (65), Lake (15), Lane (145), Lincoln (6), Linn (66), Malheur (34), Marion (155), Morrow (9), Multnomah (191), Polk (57), Sherman (5), Tillamook (2), Umatilla (49), Union (4), Wasco (11), Washington (113), and Yamhill (71).

  1. Looking at this OHA graph- one has to wonder why Kovid Kate Brown has not been absolutely grilled daily by the state’s media as to her level of responsibility for those new case- hospitalization- and death numbers- all of which surged dramatically immediately after she opened the state in July- ignoring the international warnings in March- that the Delta variant was more contagious ! One cannot look at these graphs and not clearly see “cause and effect” in horrific detail.

      1. You are free to present an alternative reason- explanation- or excuse for the massive surge in new cases “immediately” following Brown’s opening of the state in early July. Until you do so- in convincing fashion- my observations and data based opinions hold true. The floor is yours.

  2. This would be the second time in just a few days now that CV19 reporting has focused on Crook County- when there have been just as many or more deaths in Jefferson. And… if I look at the report above I see obvious clusters of names located in Lane (4)- Marion (3)- Klamath (3) and Multnomah spread out (3). Gee- wonder why this is ?

  3. Why does the OHA not report daily deaths for all causes?
    On average 68 people per day in Oregon die of age related causes, including influenza (no longer any influenza deaths).

    It appears this is a shell game to get you to comply?

    Do you own research…
