Oregon Reaches COVID-19 Milestone: Over 200,000 Total Cases

PORTLAND, Ore. – Oregon has reached a COVID-19 milestone.

The Oregon Health Authority says with 433 new cases today, the state has now surpassed 200,000 total cases.

“As we head into the Memorial Day holiday weekend, this milestone is a grim reminder that while case counts are decreasing statewide in large part due to vaccination, there remains a risk of COVID-19 in Oregon, especially for those who are not yet vaccinated,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen. “I urge caution for Oregonians who are not yet vaccinated. You are still at risk of infection and should wear a mask indoors and practice physical distance precautions.”

Here is the case information:
