Oregon adds 5,545 new cases, 40 deaths over weekend

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — On Monday, the Oregon Health Authority reported 5,545 new confirmed/presumptive cases of COVID-19 for the three days from Friday through Sunday.

Hospitals in Portland have brought on 300 National Guardsmen to alleviate staff workloads as cases have continued to rise.

Oregon ICUs are at 94% capacity, with only 39 adult ICU beds available across the state, OHA said. There are currently 1,120 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Oregon.

Because emergency rooms are under such significant strain due to the Delta variant, OHA told Oregonians to not visit Emergency Rooms for COVID-19 tests. People wanting a test can find one here.

Instead of visiting ERs, health officials also urged anyone needing non-emergency care to seek urgent care centers.

Vaccine progress

The state health agency also reported 4,629 new doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered.

The state is now averaging 8,455 doses per day, OHA said, an increase of more than 1,000 doses per day from last week’s report.

According to OHA, 2,623,918 Oregonians have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, with 2,399,069 having completed a series.

The cases

New COVID-19 cases were reported in 34 of Oregon’s 36 counties. The tri-county region of Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties accounted for 1,486 cases, but less populous counties saw a high number of cases, too: Josephine 255, Deschutes 431, Douglas 442 and Jackson 486.
