According to Oregon Health Authority, the new cases reported today are in the following counties: Baker (five), Benton (three), Clackamas (35), Clatsop (one), Columbia (three), Coos (five), Crook (two), Curry (one), Deschutes (five), Douglas (nine), Harney (11), Jackson (25), Jefferson (one), Josephine (two), Klamath (five), Lake (one), Lane (31), Linn (six), Malheur (10), Marion (72), Multnomah (72), Polk (three), Umatilla (22), Union (one), Wallowa (two), Wasco (one), Washington (50), Wheeler (one), and Yamhill (six).

“Oregon’s 664th COVID-19 death is a 66-year-old woman in Douglas County who tested positive on Oct. 18 and died on Oct. 24 at Mercy Medical Center. She had underlying conditions,” reads the OHA update.

“OHA has also asked Oregonians to rethink Halloween – avoid traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating, avoid costume parties with people outside their own households and wear a face-covering because a Halloween mask won’t protect against COVID-19.”
