Lane County Public Health notified of 19 additional positive cases for COVID-19. This makes a total of five hundred and three (503) cases. 3 cases associated with long term care facilities are also being announced today.

At least 40,652 tests administered 

 

Individuals who had contact with these community members will be contacted by Lane County Public Health so they can work with their health care providers on next steps.

1 resident at Green Valley Rehabilitation Health Center (located at 1735 Adkins St in Eugene) tested positive for COVID-10. The facility is working closely with LCPH and following all recommended public health guidelines.

1 resident and 1 staff member tested positive for COVID-19 at Waterford Grand Assisted Living and Memory Care (located at 600 Waterford Way in Eugene). The facility is working closely with LCPH and following all recommended public health guidelines. 

 

*We are now inquiring about attendance at large gatherings as part of our disease investigations and will make that information publicly available. To date, none of our confirmed cases have attended large gatherings such as protests, or rallies. We believe that the majority of our new points of transmission are from travel and small gatherings, along with household transmission.

* Presumptive cases are people without a positive PCR test who have COVID-19-like symptoms and had close contact with a confirmed case. Though not confirmed by a positive diagnostic test, presumptive cases have a high likelihood of having COVID-19 because of the specific nature of the symptoms and known exposure.
