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.

OHA investigating high COVID-19 test positivity rate

Oregon Health Authority has noted a 14% positivity rate for COVID-19 test results reported Tuesday. However, epidemiologists have not found a corresponding increase in virus cases that would be expected with such a high rate.

OHA epidemiologists do not see other indications that Tuesday’s reported high positivity rate is evidence of an impending surge, such as similar increases in hospitalizations. However, health officials will continue to investigate Tuesday’s numbers.  

OHA is reviewing whether technical issues over the weekend, including problems with a server that caused a backlog of electronic laboratory reports (ELRs) waiting to be processed, played a role in the high positivity rate. OHA will report results of its investigation in its daily news release in the coming days.

      1. Hey Barney, what is the survival rate??? We know the amount of folks who have contracted COVID, and how many have died. There is nothing reported on survivors??? WHY???

  1. Evidence continues to roll in- the vaccines have a 29% failure rate- even the vaccinated can catch- carry- and infect- these vaccines have been related to serious adverse effects that could kill you- bombshell report today- “No matter how old you are, two shots of Pfizer vaccine don’t last – study
    People’s ages had no effect on the vaccine’s waning, meaning that the vaccine waned for everyone and not just older people.”… https://www.jpost.com/health-and-wellness/coronavirus/no-matter-how-old-you-are-two-shots-of-pfizer-vaccine-dont-last-study-685141… Science deniers take note- the data don’t lie.

      1. Who should be trusted, the media? Their record of accurate unbiased reporting is spotty at best! Brokow, Williams, Couric are some of the media’s greatest stars and each has been shown to omit, change and plagiarize facts. Meanwhile so called news outlets want to be first with the story, generate traffic, Make as much money as possible, while promoting the agenda for whichever political bent its paymasters have! Then when caught, they make a small footnote somewhere with a vague clarifying statement about updating or correcting their coverage.

        Don’t trust anonymous trolls? I will take my chances vs the media any day!

        1. Then why are you here? Oh that’s right, a self-professed troll. Don’t be surprised when comments are deleted, then. Have a nice day.
          The media is not all evil. They are human and some screw up, high-profile-wise. But the vast majority of what you find online is factual.

            1. I trust Pew Research, of course. And surveys are what they are. So they sorta blame the tech – that’s like “blaming the gun” in a crime of violence.
              But it’s evident that anonymous or social media online spin of hate, misinformation and falsehoods is playing a major role in distrust in media. As is evident right here.

              1. Which is what drove me to become a troll. The way civility on this board spiraled into the gutter over a short 3 month period. Now all its good for is driving traffic through entertainment. It has no real value anymore except to let trolls play.

                1. You kiddin? It’s been this way for a long time. So you just decide to make it worse? That’s very sad, and is why many of your comments lurching into racial issues on unrelated stories will be deleted.

    1. Ummm, how is that a “bombshell” report? The article went on to state that after the booster, infection rate dropped significantly. You are amusing. 29% failure rate? Yes, the vaccinated can catch-carry and infect. What part are you leaving out? That the vaccinated are less likely to become sick enough to have to go to the hospital or die. That is a good thing right? Living has serious adverse effects that could kill you.

      1. Yes Veggies- 29% “failure rate”- that is up from 25% the previous two weeks… but maybe it’s the vocabulary that has you confused- as the CDC has decide to call them “breakthrough” cases instead. Either way- these are instances where the vaccines failed to protect the injected- who then went out and were exposed- many with deadly consequences for themselves- and who knows how many they unwillingly infected.

      2. More for veggie- You ask- “What part are you leaving out?”… Good observation ! I’ve left out any and all discussions about the massive increase in adverse reactions related to the vaccines- I’ve not talked about the 98%% who survive this bout with the Wuhan bug- with nothing more than advil and chicken noodle soup- I’ve descended into any name calling- personal attacks- or made up conspiracy theories… everything I post can be traced to the CDC- OHA- FDA- or recent Scientific Journal/Study… and yes- that’s a good thing- right ?

  2. “You are entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts.” Daniel Patrick Moynihan (March 16, 1927 – March 26, 2003). You are also entitled – a bit too conveniently – your own mask of anonymity. Will you also argue against the success of the polio vaccine? I was personally acquainted with disabled, wheelchair-bound people in my childhood who contracted polio before that vaccine was available. No one then politicized polio or small pox.

    1. Politics aside you want to compare mortality rates between small pox, polio, and Covid? It’s not going to help the case for vaccine mandates let me assure you.

    2. Billy Mouse !Thanks for reading my posts- I think if you continue down this journey with me- you will find yourself a much more enlightened soul. So to answer your question on Polio- “Will you also argue against the success of the polio vaccine ?”… Um No I wouldn’t- because it took over 20 years to develop ! Starting in the 1930’s- an “immunization vaccine” to prevent polio was finally successful in 1953. The Pfizer injections are not “immunization vaccines”- if they were- they wouldn’t wear off in 2 months !

  3. Where is the reporting on OSHA suspending the vax requirement due to the impending court of appeals decision. Sure seems like that might make a headline unless of course outlets are trying to bury it…

    1. Or the story about the Reynolds School District going back to home schooling because the children came back to school with “socialization” problems. I guess fights- screaming- outbursts- and mental breakdowns have been the norm since September… Good Gawd what has Kate Brown done ?
      https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/oregon-school-ends-live-classes-over-socialization-issues-and-children-fighting-after-year-of-lockdowns/ar-AAQPRxQ?li=BBnbcA1

  4. Gibraltar is 119% vaccinated, this includes workers coming in that works. But, they are still cancelling Christmas due to outbreaks. Anyone awake yet? Someone explain this to us that use our brains, just want to understand the rationale. And, I asked this already, why the hell do we have a mask mandate in Bend when Washington DC is stopping theirs? You Plannedemocrats make no sense. Wear 2 masks and stay home if you are afraid, guess what the majority of us aren’t afraid and living life. BTW haven’t worn a mask in many, many months not one soy latte drinking man bun has said a word to me and every business has been extremely nice. TOSS THE MASKS.https://www.news.com.au/world/coronavirus/global/most-vaxxed-country-jabbed-119-per-cent-of-its-eligible-population/news-story/28dbeed5fbb5a821cdf24f4a25036280

  5. Anyone else look at the blue chart above the article and see where “New Cases” are up and the last bar graph in the chart has shown a significant surge reflecting this jump… Yet the “experts” insist the exact opposite. It looks to me that like the vaccinations from late summer are now wearing off and the next surge is upon us. I said it a million times- the only way out of this is gonna be herd immunity- and don’t lecture anyone on the hazards of developing herd immunity- looking at the death toll- the vaccinations-masks-lockdowns-mental health issues… have been much worse.

    1. The media continues to show us they are not to be trusted and in many cases driving racial tensions. MSNBC was caught spying on jurors in the Rittenhause trial and by doing so have become the news rather than reporting on it! Every day, we see more and more disturbing examples of this type of behavior!

      1. You are absolutely correct- “Media roasted for coverage of Steele dossier in NY Times, after paper obsessed over collusion for years”… “The Steele dossier created countless hours of cable news content, as liberal pundits like MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow pushed it at every turn. The dossier also helped push the Russian-collusion narrative”… Of course we all know now that it was all a complete hit job- so when is CNN and their affiliates going to grovel for forgiveness ? Don’t count on it- their arrogance and unprofessional acts know now limits. https://www.foxnews.com/media/liberal-media-washington-post-erroneous-steele-dossier-reporting
