Oregon Health Authority confirmed 33 new known cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, alongside three more fatalities.

At the time of writing, the number of known cases in Oregon sits at 1,663, with 58 fatalities.

According to Oregon Health Authority, the new cases reported today are in the following counties: Benton (1), Clackamas (7), Columbia (3), Douglas (1), Lane (2), Linn (1), Marin (5), Multnomah (10), Umatilla (1), and Washington (2).

“Oregon’s 58th COVID-19 death is a 92-year-old woman in Multnomah County, who tested positive on April 9 and died on April 12 at her residence. She had underlying medical conditions,” reads the OHA update.

While the current situation in Oregon will shift and grow, the OHA is providing daily updates on the effects in our state.

“With recent news that federal authorities may recommend wearing masks in public, Oregon Health Authority is reminding Oregonians that staying home and avoiding all non-essential contact with others continues to be the most important thing all of us can do to stay healthy and keep others healthy,” writes the OHA.

After an executive order was passed down by Governor Kate Brown, the state has shut down all non-essential expeditions away from the isolation of Oregonian homes.

Health officials urge good hand hygiene, covering coughs and staying home if you are sick. A guideline regarding how to keep your personal, work, and schools clean published by the Center for Disease Control can be found here.
