OHA Releases Weekly Testing Summary

OHA’s most recent Weekly Testing Summary showed that as of Sept. 12, Oregon’s cumulative positivity rate is 4.6 percent of people tested. This is considerably lower than the national average of 8 percent. Of the 17,365 test results reported so far for the week of Sept. 6-12, 965 or 5.6 percent were positive. The total for that week is likely to rise as test results continue to be reported to OHA. Test positivity had been declining since a peak in late July; however, current results indicate a lower number of tests and a higher test positivity for the most recent week. OHA will continue to monitor the situation
