Oregon reports 5,821 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 54 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. — There are 54 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 3,326, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

Oregon Health Authority reported 5,821 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 289,649. The totals reflect data reported by local health officials over four days, between Sept. 3 and Sept. 6.

Governor Brown press conference highlights school-based COVID-19 measures

Governor Kate Brown held a press conference this morning with OHA Health Officer and State Epidemiologist Dr. Dean Sidelinger, Oregon Department of Education Director Colt Gill and Dr. Dana Braner, physician-in-chief at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. A video link to today’s media briefing is here.

Dr. Sidelinger encouraged all eligible Oregonians who have not been vaccinated to schedule their appointments as soon as they can to protect themselves and others with safe and highly effective vaccines. Dr. Sidelinger also highlighted how OHA has been working closely with the Oregon Department of Education to ensure that Oregon schools remain well protected against COVID-19. The measures include diagnostic testing for students or staff who display symptoms of COVID-19, weekly screening testing for unvaccinated K-12 staff and weekly screening testing of unvaccinated students through an opt-in program.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 1,140, which is 12 fewer than yesterday. There are 300 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 10 fewer than yesterday.

There are 57 available adult ICU beds out of 641 total (9% availability) and 409 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,317 (9% availability).

Available Beds

The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

Note: Please do not visit an emergency department for COVID-19 testing, unless you require emergency care for your symptoms.

Emergency departments in Oregon are under significant strain responding to the current surge in COVID-19. You can find a test here.  

If you have a medical condition that doesn’t require emergency care, contact your provider. An urgent care center may also help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.  

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.
