“Oregon’s 232nd COVID-19 death is a 99-year-old woman in Lincoln County who tested positive on June 26 and died on July 9. Location of death is being confirmed. She had underlying medical conditions,” writes the OHA.

The OHA is also reminding people that federal authorities continue to recommend wearing masks in public, including recent orders from Governor Kate Brown making face coverings mandatory in the state of Oregon beginning July 1.

The restrictions in an executive order passed down by Governor Brown have recently seen loosening. Instituting a new phased reopening plan, the state will reevaluate how to approach the coronavirus on a county-by-county basis as businesses look to reopen.
