Oregon reports 1,413 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 82 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. — There are 82 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 4,084 the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

Oregon Health Authority reported 1,413 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 345,344.

Note: Today’s total marks the highest number of COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon reported in a single day. This is in part due to a death data reconciliation. 

Death is a lagging indicator and generally follows a surge in cases. In addition, there is often a lag in reporting as our epidemiologists review death certificates. OHA expects that reported deaths may continue to be high even as daily case counts decrease. This is due to the time lag between when a person tests positive for a case of COVID-19 and when they die with COVID-19.

The best way to reduce COVID-19 related deaths is by getting vaccinated. Safe, free and highly effective vaccines are widely available throughout Oregon.

Third doses and booster doses are also recommended for those who are eligible. Getting vaccinated is helping to bring the surge due to the Delta variant under control and can also reduce the likelihood of other variants emerging.

Health Care Workforce dashboard monthly data refresh now available

For October’s data refresh, the Health Care Workforce (HCW) dashboard now includes data up to Oct. 4, 2021. The health care workforce population for each Oregon county has also been added. As expected, vaccination rates continue to climb across all license boards and types for an overall vaccination rate of 82%.

Note: The Health Care Workforce dashboard does not represent the HCW population that needs to be vaccinated under the mandate announced on Aug. 10, 2021. Whether a health care worker falls under the mandate for vaccination can vary among license boards and types based on various circumstances or factors. OHA does not have specific data on the proportion of health care workers subject to the mandate.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 585, which is 59 fewer than yesterday. There are 149 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 21 fewer than yesterday.

There are 56 available adult ICU beds out of 682 total (8% availability) and 298 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,117 (7% availability).

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.
