On Tuesday, the Oregon Health Authority confirmed 181 new known cases of COVID-19 and three new fatalities.

At the time of writing, the number of known cases in Oregon sits at 8,656, with 207 deaths.

According to Oregon Health Authority, the new cases reported today are in the following counties: Clackamas (19), Coos (one), Deschutes (10), Jackson (five), Jefferson (12), Josephine (two), Klamath (three), Lake (two), Lane (seven), Lincoln (three), Linn (four), Malheur (seven), Marion (25), Multnomah (38), Polk (two), Umatilla (nine), Union (10), Wasco (one), Washington (18), and Yamhill (three).

“Oregon’s 207th COVID-19 death is a 66-year-old woman in Marion County who tested positive on June 12 and died on June 27, at Salem Hospital. She had underlying medical conditions,” reads a release from 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.
