PORTLAND, Ore. — The state’s death toll from COVID-19 is unchanged from yesterday and remains at 289, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

Oregon Health Authority reported 340 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today bringing the state total to 17,088.

COVID weekly testing summary shows declining positive rate

According to OHA’s Weekly Testing Summary, 38,179 COVID-19 test results were reported last week, of which 4.8 percent were positive. This represents the first weekly decline in percent positivity since it began increasing in late May.

Unfortunately, OHA continues to receive widespread reports of extended turnaround time from commercial laboratories; in some cases, results are being reported up to two weeks following specimen collection. Supply shortages due to supply chain issues continue to be of concern and OHA is closely monitoring the situation.
