OHA RELEASES NEW VIRUS FORECAST

The latest COVID-19 forecast for Oregon shows that the state’s virus reproductive rate was estimated at 1.21 on August 11th.

If that level of transmission remains, by September 7th, the state will see 3,000 new daily cases and 165 new hospitalizations.

However, the modeling shows that if mask use grows to about 80 percent of the population, that number goes down to about 2,500 new daily cases and 135 hospitalizations.
